RLASP serves both graduate and undergraduate students as well as working professionals. Program features include homestays, weekly excursions, travel to other regions outside the host city, conversation partners, and a wide range of opportunities to volunteer, pursue hobbies and personal interests in a Russian-language context. Participants receive academic credit for the program through Bryn Mawr College. All courses are taught in Russian by expert faculty with experience teaching foreign students.
