US-Russia University Partnership Program (UPP)


Monday, May 18, 2015

Eurasia Foundation’s US-Russia University Partnership Program (UPP) invites accredited higher education institutions from Russia and the United States to submit joint proposals for new bilateral partnerships to the Spring 2015 Linkage funding competition. UPP accepts proposals in any academic field that are jointly developed by at least one US and one Russian partner institution, with the goal of launching mutually-beneficial partnership projects that promise strong and sustained cooperation between institutions beyond the funding period.

Linkage applicants are not required to have participated in the preceding UPP Contact project funding competition. Projects that receive Linkage funding may vary in duration, but the funding period may not exceed twelve months. Different schools and/or departments of the same institution may submit applications for funding, but UPP will fund only one project per institution during each funding round.

Proposals that are eligible for UPP funding include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following types of partnerships: International Dual/Double Degree Programs; International Joint Degree Programs; Collaborative Teaching / Joint Courses; Faculty Exchanges; Faculty-led Study Tours; Joint Research Projects; and Resource-sharing Arrangements. The following types of partnerships are ineligible: Student Exchanges; International Service Learning; and Internship Programs. Proposals may cover any academic or professional subject matter, but projects should avoid topics that focus on political activity or other non-academic goals.
