TAU Launches Emergency Fellowship Fund for Ukrainian Graduate Students

Written on | ,

Tel Aviv University to host students whose studies have been halted due to the unfolding crisis.

In response to the escalating war and dire humanitarian situation in Ukraine, Tel Aviv University today announced the launch of the Emergency Fellowship Fund for Ukrainian Graduate Students.  

The University established the fellowship program alongside a fundraising drive to support dozens of Ukrainian students and researchers with immediate refuge and assistance that will enable them to continue their academic studies and research, which have been halted due to the unfolding crisis. 

The Fund will enable Ukrainian students at the graduate and post-doctoral levels to spend a full semester at TAU. Eligible applicants must hold Ukrainian citizenship. Application is open to students currently enrolled at a Ukrainian university, in any discipline.  

Successful applicants will be awarded full tuition alongside a living stipend and will be welcome to remain on campus for up to six months. TAU will invite them to campus shortly after notification of acceptance, and match the students with a TAU faculty member who will serve as a mentor while at TAU. 

Furthermore, TAU is already in contact with the Ukrainian Embassy in Israel and the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine, as well as with their academic counterparts, to facilitate the process and ensure successful applicants are able to reach Israel as soon as possible. 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis effective immediately and until further notice.  

TAU stresses that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a red flag requiring all of us to make an all-out effort to help the Ukrainian people, many of whom have lost their homes and become refugees overnight. 

“The steps we are taking are admittedly modest. However, we hope that other academic institutions, both in Israel and worldwide, will follow our example, and lend a helping hand to the Ukrainian people in this dire situation,” said TAU President Prof. Ariel Porat. 

To apply, please send the following materials to: intlprojects@tauex.tau.ac.il

  • 1-page (up to 500 words) statement describing research 
  • Letter of recommendation from advisor 
  • Document showing active status at home university in Ukraine
