American Councils offer Philanthropic Support for Displaced Ukrainian ScholarsLocation: Location: United States of America | Workplace: On site

Three American foundations, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Richard Lounsbery Foundation, and The Stirling Foundation have awarded grants to American Councils for International Education to create a Ukrainian Visiting Scholars Program (VSP). The program will support displaced Ukrainian university faculty and researchers whose work has been disrupted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and continuing violence. The VSP allows affected scholars and teachers from Ukraine to resume their work in safer parts of the country, or at institutions outside the country.

Eligibility for the VSP is limited to scholars and university faculty who meet program requirements for holding visiting research and/or teaching positions at one of American Councils’ more than 30 cooperating partner institutions in Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Poland, and Romania, as well as at Ukrainian institutions in the Central and Western regions of the country. Initial visiting appointments are open to faculty of all disciplines and ranks and for terms of one or two semesters.
