The Shevchenko Foundation congratulates the recipients of the CUF Bursary Fund for Displaced Post-Secondary Ukrainian Students.
The Shevchenko Foundation (TSF) and the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) announced the new bursary on June 1 to provide financial assistance for displaced Ukrainians enrolled in Canadian post-secondary learning institutions.
The overwhelming response resulted in the disbursement of 61 bursaries totalling $302,500. The students are from 21 cities in Ukraine and will be studying at 30 different educational institutions across Canada.
“The overwhelming response to the funding program demonstrated a need that, in partnership with CUF, we were able to address. We’re grateful to CUF for partnering with TSF on this invaluable initiative,” stated TSF President Boris Balan.
“We congratulate the bursary recipients and wish them well on their educational journey.”
“The Shevchenko Foundation has demonstrated leadership in scholarships and bursaries for students for decades – once again, they have demonstrated they were the ideal partner to receive these funds from CUF and administer this program,” said Orest Sklierenko, President and CEO of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation. “CUF was happy to fully support this initiative for displaced Ukrainian students in Canada.”
The Canada-Ukraine Foundation is a national charitable foundation established in 1995 at the 18th Ukrainian Canadian Congress to coordinate, develop, organize, and deliver assistance projects by Canadians directed to Ukraine and other organizations in Canada.
