International Intellectual Exchange Scholarship for a 4-Year BA Program

Are you looking for an opportunity to expand your intellectual and cultural world while completing your undergraduate education at an innovative international undergraduate degree program taught in English? We are looking for outgoing, intellectually engaged English-speaking students to study at the School of Advanced Studies (SAS) at the University of Tyumen in Siberia, Russia.

This scholarship is open to international students with a high level of proficiency in English.  Scholarship recipients will receive comprehensive support for the completion of a four-year undergraduate degree, beginning September 2019.
