Upon serving their term, hundreds of Ukrainian men and women are coming back home from the front line of Ukrainian-Russian War and struggling to adapt to new realities of the “peaceful life”. They are striving to continue to serve Ukraine but need to find new paths and professional education is a definite solution to help these people.
UAZA is taking part in fundraising initiative of @RAZOM for Ukraine together with Institute of Gender Studies to help raise money for Bohdan Radchenko Stipend program to provide 5 highly motivated and accomplished veterans of Ukrainian-Russian War with a possibility to gain Master’s degree in the specialization of their choice at one of the best universities of Ukraine – Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (KMA).
In the first year of the project 4 veterans of the Ukrainian-Russian war were chosen from 11 applicants to receive stipends. They started their Master’s program in fall 2018.
In addition to Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Master’s programs, it has been negotiated with the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) to provide a 50% discount for their tuition for the veterans who apply for the Bohdan Rachenko Stipend. This will allow them to cover more veterans who wish to pursue the degree.
In order to receive the Bohdan Radchenko Stipend, veterans have to: apply and get admitted to either KMA or UCU for a Master’s program of their choice; apply for the Stipend; and successfully pass the interview. The project committee reviews the results of each interview and each application, and chooses the applicants, who will be awarded the Stipend each specific year. Others will be strongly encouraged to try again next year.
We are looking forward to their successes and progress, not only in academics, but in life.
