The final deadline for applications to be submitted is 29 May 2011.URF (Stanford US-Russia Forum) is a nonprofit organization that explores policy, business, and economics through international student collaboration. Founded in 2008, SURF offers an annual 6-month exchange program for students at leading Russian and American universities. In addition to this flagship program, SURF publishes the annual SURF Journal and hosts bi-annual conferences at Stanford and in Moscow. For three years, more than 150 students from over 20 Russian and American universities have attended the program.
Now SURF is starting a new chapter in its history. The program for 2011-2012 will include three stages:
• Opening Conference in Moscow in November 2011;
• Collaborative Research Projects between December 2011 and March 2012;
• Capstone Conference at Stanford University in April 2012.
