Non-Residential Fellowships for Scholars from Ukraine

Fellowship Programs

In recognition of the need for urgent support of Ukraine’s intellectual community in the face of Russia’s war of aggression, the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM, Vienna), the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University (HURI), and the Harriman Institute at Columbia University have partnered to offer non-residential fellowships for Ukrainian scholars, cultural figures, and public intellectuals. 

These fellowships provide a one-time stipend of 5000 EUR to support recipients’ intellectual activities.  


These fellowships are open to: 

  • Ukrainian scholars in the humanities and social sciences who hold a PhD or its equivalent at the time of application 
  • Ukrainian writers, artists, and public intellectuals whose work contributes to deeper international understanding of Ukrainian society 

Preference will be given to applicants who intend to or must remain in Ukraine for legal, professional, or personal reasons. 


Please note that the first round of applications is closed. The selected fellows and their projects will be presented on this page as soon as possible.
