Canada-Ukraine Foundation and Shevchenko Foundation congratulate the recipients of the CUF Bursary Fund for Displaced Post-Secondary Ukrainian Students

The Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) and the Shevchenko Foundation (TSF) announced a 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 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 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.”

This type of programming is possible thanks to the continued and generous support of our many donors. To learn about the many initiatives of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation, please go to our website.
