About Us

The Russian Cultural Centre (RCC) is the official home of Russian culture in the United States. It is an agency of the Russian Government, under the authority of the Foreign Ministry of Russia.


 The RCC is subordinate to the Russian Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo).

It was created pursuant to a bilateral agreement between the United States and Russia, adopted following the Summit of Presidents Gorbachev and Reagan in Geneva in 1985.

The purpose of the RCC is to develop and maintain positive relations between the Russian and American people by sponsoring activities in the five areas of Education, The Arts, Commerce, Athletics and Science.

The RCC cooperates with the numerous Russian-American organizations in both countries and has liaisons with universities, museums and other cultural institutions across the U.S. and Russia.

Study in Russia


Russia.Study starts to submit applications for education in Russian universities for 2019.

Since November 8, we opened acceptance of documents from foreign citizens and Russian expatriates for free education at Russian universities within the framework of the quota of the Government of the Russian Federation.

456 Russian universities are involved in this program. School leavers can choose any training programs, bachelor’s and specialist’s degree programs. University-educated candidates can go onto further study in Master’s degree program, postgraduate training program and residency training. Additional education programs are also available: for example, courses for foreign teachers of Russian, professional development programs and occupational retraining.

Applications for education within the quota are accepted and processed free.

The Russian Federation allocates 15,000 quotas for foreign citizens annually. These quotas allow receiving free education during the entire period of study. Also, the state program covers teaching Russian on pre-university courses. Within the program, you will get a place in a dormitory and receive scholarship allowance.
