Together with the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Eurasia Foundation will fund innovative projects promoting U.S.-Russian collaboration in professional and cultural areas of mutual interest to the United States and Russia, including but not limited to entrepreneurship, social inclusion, public health, community service, volunteerism, science and technology, and the arts.

Projects should emphasize U.S.-Russian collaboration and knowledge exchange in their design. While conducting the funded project, implementers should have varied and plentiful opportunities to substantively engage with their international partners. Engagement can be achieved through co-hosted webinars, joint events in the U.S. and Russia, bilateral presentations, international volunteer engagement, collaborative performances, or through other creative activities.
