«The opportunities afforded to the fellows in the Likachev program are phenomenal. Introductions to museums, institutions, and colleagues one has always hoped to find time to make are suddenly available. Contacts and visits to museums and institutions one did not even know existed are also opened for you. It is an absolutely unique and extremely valuable program for any American interested in learning more about Russian culture».
