AGBU LAUNCHES MOSCOW SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

AGBU is currently accepting applications for its newly created 2010 Moscow Summer Intern Program. Already home to the largest community in the worldwide Armenian diaspora, Moscow will be the location of AGBU's newest summer intern program, which joins the organization's successful programs in New York and Yerevan. The first Moscow Summer Intern Program is scheduled to begin on June 26, 2010, and it will continue for five weeks, concluding on July 31. The program will offer students of Armenian descent from around the world a once-in-a-lifetime professional experience in a global hub of trade, commerce, diplomacy and innovation. Participating students will experience the exhilaration of the Russian capital, which is home to hundreds of international corporations and leading organizations. They will stay at the dormitories of the internationally renowned Moscow State University with the best and brightest Armenian students from around the world. They will be immersed in the thrill of modern Russia and discover a world of opportunity they could only dream of. Like its sister programs in New York and Yerevan, students participating in the Moscow program will explore the Armenian character of the city and meet local Russian Armenians who are a driving force in the revitalization of this former capital of the Soviet Union. In addition to local outings, educational seminars and cultural workshops, participants will travel to St. Petersburg to explore the cultural riches of czarist Russia. Among the treasures they will encounter during their trip to Russia's second city will be the famed Hermitage Museum and St. Catherine's Armenian Apostolic Church. Students are not required to know Russian to participate as they will be placed in English-language work environments.
