Since the Alfa Fellowship Program’s inception in 2004, fellows have gained professional experience in a wide variety of placements at over 120 leading companies and organizations in Russia. Together with the Fund for International Fellowships and Cultural Dialogue, fellows play an active role in identifying appropriate placements in organizations that fit their professional backgrounds and goals while on the program.
Fellows’ fields vary from year to year; below is a sample list of where fellows have completed work placements.
Please note, prior to becoming fellows, applicants to the program are expected to show their knowledge of their respective fields in Russia by including in their personal statement thoughtful and well-researched proposals for placements where they would enhance their professional skills and contribute to the host organization’s mission through their placement there.
