Ukrainian Studies Program
The Ukrainian Studies Program at Columbia University aspires to build a vibrant and multi-faceted program that integrates Ukrainian studies into broader intellectual and policy agendas while promoting research and scholarly work on contemporary Ukraine in the United States. By expanding the existing offerings of departments, institutes, and schools at Columbia, the Ukrainian Studies Program aims to develop a curriculum that will educate academics, diplomats, journalists, businessmen, and future specialists on the history, language, literature, and politics of Ukraine.
In recognition of the need for urgent support of Ukraine’s intellectual community in the face of Russia’s war of aggression, the Harriman Institute, along with partner organizations, has created two new fellowship programs.
Recognizing the need for ongoing 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 are partnering to offer non-residential fellowships for Ukrainian scholars in the humanities and social sciences.
We have jointly awarded 35 fellowships, which provide a one-time stipend of 5000 EUR to support recipients’ intellectual activities and carry a 5-month affiliation with the IWM from February-June 2023.
