Description: The U.S. Embassy in Moscow (PAS Moscow) of the U.S. Department of State invites proposal submissions for a cooperative agreement to design and implement a new program designed for newly-graduated Russian high school students. The program will provide a “gap year” experience for young Russians and offer an opportunity to improve their English skills, study at an American community college campus and experience life with an American family. Each participant will go to the United States for a full academic year, starting in the fall of 2020. The award recipient will be responsible for all program elements, including recruitment and selection, securing visas, arranging travel, pre-departure orientation, placement, monitoring, and return to Russia. Competitive proposals should include approximately 80-150 participants and effectively utilize government resources to maximize the number of program participants, while still providing adequate health and safety, orientation services, and support services for participating students.
