|ASEEES Initiatives to Support Displaced Scholars and Students from Ukraine|
We at ASEEES continue to focus our efforts in supporting displaced scholars and students from/in Ukraine. In March, the ASEEES Board of Director approved allocation of $10,000 to support Ukrainian displaced scholars. We have donated the funds to the HURI-IWM Vienna Non-Residential Fellowship program for Ukrainian scholars. We’re also launching a Ukrainian Scholar Travel Grant program that will provide travel subsidies for scholars from Ukraine to participate in the 2022 ASEEES Convention in Chicago (more info forthcoming soon).
We are holding a second webinar on How to Host/Support Displaced Scholars and Students, Part II, on Friday, April 22, 2:00-3:15pm ET, which will discuss the new Ukrainian Global University initiative, non-residential fellowships for Ukrainian scholars, fundraising success story at a US public university and the UC Davis Article 26 Backpack.
Speakers: Timofii Brik, Kyiv School of Economics; Katherine Younger, Institute for Human Sciences, Vienna; Mary Neuburger, University of Texas at Austin; and Keith Wattenpaugh, UC Davis Article 26 Backpack
For more information and to register, go to the Resources page. We also created a Facebook group for anyone to join to share practical information and best practices for hosting displaced scholars and students.
