FERI is equipping the Resource Center at MSU with a collection of books, videos, and other historical materials on the Roosevelt era and with computer access to the Internet where a growing body of primary source material on American history (including FERI's New Deal Network) can be found. Each year, FERI is sponsoring a Roosevelt Fellow who will spend 7-10 days at MSU working with students, lecturing and hosting symposia and public forums. Students, teachers, policy-makers, political leaders and members of the public will be invited to meet with the Fellow to examine the American economy, social fabric, media, and political landscape during the Roosevelt eras and to discuss the practical application of the Roosevelt legacy to current issues. FERI is also providing a Roosevelt Scholarship each year to a Russian student to enable him or her to pursue studies related to the Roosevelt era at the FDR Library in Hyde Park or the RSC in the Netherlands.
The other International Roosevelt Resource Centers being planned will feature similar programs and will be housed at major universities, research or policy centers.
