Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues in Russia. The Russian colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $30,000.
Priority will be given to projects that:
- propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Russia participants
- demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Russia teams
