Announcement: Revived Cooperation between Roosevelt Institute, Moscow State University, and RIAS

In the mid 1990s the Roosevelt Institute (RI) in New York established the Roosevelt Foundation for the Study of the United States at Moscow State University (MSU).

David Woolner, Yuri Rogoulev, and former director Cornelis A. van Minnen

The original program enabled MSU students to apply for a grant to carry out research at the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, NY. As part of the same program, the RI also offered assistance to MSU students to take advantage of a research trip to Middelburg. This has now been revived.

The RIAS is grateful that Professor David Woolner (RI) and Professor Yuri Rogoulev (MSU) have been able to establish a new source of funding for this unique Grants-in Aid program. We have been pleased to welcome two Russian researchers to the Institute in 2019: Ilia Lakstygal and Irina Khruleva. Both students conducted research here for two weeks, and participated in RIAS activities during their stay. In particular, Ilia presented his research at the spring edition of the International PhD Seminar 2019.
