The American Friends of Russian Folklore (AFRF) will offer four expeditions this year. Volunteers work in the field documenting a variety of materials from songs to holiday celebrations.
Details may be found at: www.russianfolklorefriends.org
A scholarship in the amount of $1900, applicable to any of the 2018-January 2019 expeditions, is available to American citizens. AFRF is especially looking for candidates who will help to further American understanding of traditional village life. Past scholarship recipients have included undergraduate students, graduate students, elementary school teachers, and a professional photographer. Recipients are required to produce a paper, article, exhibit or other work about folklore or about their experience on the expedition, which we will then share with the public.
Deadline is February 28, 2018.
