|University of Cyprus: 10 Scholarships for Ukrainian Refugee Students|
As a token of support and solidarity to Ukrainian refugee students the University of Cyprus announces the award of 10 scholarships, whose studies were violently disrupted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Recognising the blatant violation of their rights, the coercion to flee their homeland, the destruction of public utility buildings and university facilities, the Council of the University of Cyprus approved, on 14 March 2022, the recommendation of the Rector’s Council for providing 5 scholarships for undergraduate studies and 5 scholarships for postgraduate studies, as well as scholarships for attending courses of Greek language at the School of Modern Greek. Each scholarship covers both the tuition fees and monthly living expenses.
Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, with the Ukrainian university community with the Mariupol State Humanitarian University, the V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, the Odesa National Economic University and the Yuriy Fedkovych National University Chernivtsi, universities with which the University of Cyprus has established collaborations, as well as with all the Ukrainian universities and the people of Ukraine.
This act aims to support the Ukrainian students that were forced to leave their homes and interrupt their future plans. In this period of uncertainty, the 10 scholarships will allow the awardees to continue dreaming about their own and their country’s future in a safe environment. The University community will welcome them with love, supporting them in this difficult and unfair situation.
