Bard Announces Emergency Ukrainian Student Refuge Program
These scholarships are open to university students from Ukraine who have lost access to higher education due to displacement or whose institutions have been forced to close or are operating under challenging circumstances, and those who were unable to begin their higher education due to the 2022 invasion of Ukraine. Students from operational Ukrainian higher education institutions will be hosted in cooperation with their home institution, both to ensure that students can continue working towards their degrees, and to maintain the stability of those Ukrainian institutions that are currently under duress. Applications will be welcome from students participating in the Central European University/Open Society University Network Invisible University for Ukraine.
Select applicants will be considered for the spring 2023 semester, however the principal start of the Bard Emergency Ukrainian Student Refuge Program will be the fall 2023 semester.
The primary language of instruction is English, and all students must be sufficiently proficient to study in English. A commonly accepted language assessment score (TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo) is required. Students will take courses from the regular curriculums of each Bard institution, although through the Open Society University Network select courses are offered in other languages.
The terms of the scholarship will vary, but each will cover a minimum of full tuition. Housing and living stipends will be available on a case-by-case basis according to need. Scholarships will be for a minimum of one year, with the possibility of renewal.
