Soviet-Eastern European Research and Training Act of 1983. Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. United States Senate, Ninety-Eighth Congress, First Session on S. 873.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources.
Hearings on a bill to establish a Soviet and Eastern-European research training fund are presented. The Senate bill, the Soviet-East European Research and Training Act of 1983, identifies priorities in Soviet and East European studies and seeks to develop American resources and strength in these areas. It provides fellowships for training and research in the Soviet Union: first-hand experience of the Soviet Union, onsite conduct of advanced training, and access for American specialists to research institutions, archives, documents, personnel, and other research and training sources located in the Soviet Union. Russian language training is identified as an important prerequisite to these activities. Topics of consideration include: the U.S. government's role in supporting Russian and East European studies, the role of Title VI of the Higher Education Act, the management aspects of the proposed legislation, and the establishment of an endowment as a funding mechanism for the training fund.
