Scholars will receive a $5,000 grant for research, writing and teaching in addition to an IU computing account and access to digital resources and virtual borrowing from IU Libraries, Media Collections Online, Kanopy and IU ScholarWorks.

The IU Robert F. Byrnes Russian and East European Institute will oversee the program and organize webinars for fellows to share their work and find community. 

In February, Russia launched an unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, leaving 13 million people internally displaced or as refugees.  

Sarah D. Phillips, director of the Russian and East European Institute and a professor of anthropology, said in the release that the program was created to support Ukrainian scholars who cannot leave the country even in wartime. 

Fellows will also be invited to participate in the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian Studies Conference, a yearly research conference named after a Ukrainian writer. The conference will be organized by the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures and the Russian and East European Institute.

To be eligible for the program, applicants must be enrolled in a postgraduate program or hold a kandidat, doctorate or Doctor of Philosophy in the social sciences or humanities. English proficiency is not required. 

The application, available in English and Ukrainian, is due Aug. 1, 2022. 

Questions about the application process and the program should be sent to reei@indiana.edu with the subject line "IU-Ukraine Non-Resident Scholars Program."
