PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT

U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF)

Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation


Basic Research and Higher Education (BRHE)

2005 Fellowship Competition


I. Introduction

The U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) and Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation will, on a competitive basis, support Fellowships in Research and Education Centers (RECs) created within the BRHE Program for young Russian scientists and engineers who have received their Kandidat degree no more than six years prior to January 1, 2006. At projected levels of program funding, the 2005 competition will support up to 100 Fellowships of US$12,000 each for a three-year period.


The goal of this program is to strengthen the new generation of Russian science by enabling junior scientists to advance their careers through research and teaching at Russian universities. The Fellowships will provide junior scientists with opportunities to explore new research ideas through access to the facilities of modern and well-equipped laboratories, and to gain experience in teaching and mentoring younger scientists. This experience will be particularly valuable to those who go on to seek the D.Sc. degree and to those hoping to enhance their careers by applying to work at a university other than the one with which they are currently affiliated.


This Fellowship program operates within the framework of the Basic Research and Higher Education (BRHE) Program, which was designed jointly by the CRDF and RF Ministry of Education and Science to support the formation of Research and Education Centers (RECs) in Russian Higher Education Institutions (VUZy) belonging to the RF Ministry of Education and Science. The BRHE program has established sixteen RECs, listed in the Appendix, that promote high-quality scientific research and educational programs, training and experience in research management, support of young investigators, and close cooperation with other leading research, educational, government and regional institutions.


Funding for this Fellowship program is derived from both U.S. and Russian sources:



  • Two-thirds of the funding is expected to be provided by the RF Ministry of Education and Science.

  • One-third of the funding is provided by American sources through grants to the CRDF from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Carnegie Corporation of New York.


The CRDF is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes international scientific and technical collaboration. More information about the CRDF can be found at http://www.crdf.org.


^ The competition results will be announced in November 2005.

II. Terms and Conditions of Participation in the Competition
