SEE is now accepting applications for a new round of the Independent Professional (INP) initiative.  We support collaboration among U.S. and Russian social experts in Social Inclusion, Community Engagement and Volunteerism, Social Entrepreneurship, and Youth Engagement and Mentorship.  


Independent Professionals will travel to a host country (Russia or the US) during Fall 2019-Winter 2020 to collaborate with partner organizations on seeking new solutions for social challenges relevant to both countries. Upon their return home, independent professionals will implement activities to convey and apply their new knowledge and expertise for the benefit of their colleagues and community.  


Applications for the current round must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on August 5, 2019 (7:59 AM Moscow Time on August 6, 2019
