SABIT Grants Facilitate International Cooperation

SABIT offers competitive grants to cover a share of the costs of hosting mid- to senior-level Eurasian managers and scientists for 3 to 6 months of hands-on, professional training in U.S. managerial, research and technology development practices. The SABIT Grant Program encourages U.S. exports and investment in Eurasia, and assists economic development by facilitating partnerships between the U.S. and Eurasian business and scientific communities.


Participating U.S. organizations may either nominate a candidate from their existing Eurasian business contacts, or work with SABIT to recruit and select a qualified candidate. Organizations can apply to host trainees from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Structured as reimbursable awards, SABIT grants cover only the following three items:

bullet arrow Round-trip airfare from trainee’s home country to the training site
bullet arrow $34 per diem to cover trainee’s living expenses
bullet arrow Up to $750 per month for housing costs

The host organization is responsible for any additional costs associated with the training (overhead costs, domestic travel, etc.)




Any American profit or non-profit organization or institution may apply. The Grant Program is ideally suited for small and medium sized businesses that are new-to-market exporters looking to establish long-term relationships with potential customers, distributors or partners. Organizations currently operating in Eurasia may also utilize a SABIT Grant to expand relationships with and train existing partners, or to establish additional regional representative offices. Companies, universities and institutes involved in technology transfer and commercialization have used SABIT Grants to form cooperative research and development partnerships with the Eurasian scientific community. Non-governmental organizations have transferred institutional knowledge, technical expertise, and skills to Eurasian partners and associates through the SABIT Grant Program.
