About
The main feature of our June program is the participation in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Often referred to as Russia's Davos, SPIEF brings together top leaders from politics, business, media, academia and the civil society for candid discussions of key issues facing the world.

This opportunity is open to students and recent graduates of leading American universities. It is designed to deepen expertise, improve understanding, and advance dialogue on the future of U.S.-Russia relations.

PROGRAM

The program will span four days, June 5-9, and will be dominated by SPIEF, where participants will attend informative sessions and networking opportunities as well as sit down for a series of private meetings with some of the forum's VIPs. Outside of SPIEF, participants will be invited to explore cultural attractions and enjoy the local nightlife scene.

COST

Program participants are provided with far-reaching access to the forum and free visas to Russia. Travel and accommodation expenses are not covered by the program.
