Virtual Field Office Network
As NCEEER's programs have expanded, the need for various logistical services--such as recruitment of scholars from the region, placement of American scholars in the region, the monitoring of grants--has become an important organizational issue. In order to provide for on-site services throughout Eurasia and Eastern Europe, NCEEER has negotiated a series of fee-for-service agreements, which give it access to a "virtual field office" network, in addition to the NCEEER field office in Moscow.
Agreements with the permanent Fulbright Commissions in six Central and Eastern European countries give NCEEER access to field office services in that region. A similar arrangement has been negotiated with the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies in the three Baltic countries. Finally, NCEEER has concluded an agreement with the American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS, which gives it access to the American Council's network of 46 field offices in the former Soviet Union.
Thanks to these agreements, NCEEER can now offer the scholars it funds field office services in the following countries and cities.
