Projects are jointly implemented by partner organizations and institutions from the U.S. and Russia over a period of twelve months. Partnerships are competitively selected and work together to address a theme of mutual interest in the U.S. and Russia that will facilitate greater understanding of shared values between the two countries. P2P aims to accomplish concrete project goals as well as strengthen the capacity for continued collaboration between U.S. and Russian peers. Successful partnerships will result in a tangible outcome that enhances interaction and understanding between U.S. and Russian societies well beyond the project end date.

    • Prorated portion of salaries for project team members.
