The US-Russia University Partnership Program (UPP) is an initiative for mutual cultural and academic collaboration that connects higher education institutions in Russia and US with one another and supports the launch of new bilateral partnerships.  It provides professors, researchers, administrators and other higher education professionals in Russia and the US an opportunity to broaden the scope of their activities and learn from the vast wealth of knowledge and experience the counterpart institution brings to the partnership. 

UPP is implemented by the Eurasia Foundation and the National Training Foundation with funding from the U.S. Department of State.
