Deadline for Applications: February 10, 2019
Scholarship applications are now being accepted for students, teachers and academics to join folklore expeditions to Russia, Siberia and the Russian Altai region.
Expeditions are led by respected Russian scholars with years of experience in the field. Scholarship recipients and other volunteers join in the work of the expedition – conducting interviews, making video and audio recordings, and processing the collected field materials. Research team members live in rural villages, immersed in local customs and language. Fluency in Russian is helpful, but not required.
The $1500 AFRF scholarship, or the $1000 K12 Teacher scholarships, may be applied to any of the six expeditions scheduled for July, August and October 2019. For details, please visit
