The recent crisis in Ukraine has had significant effects throughout the world, displacing millions and creating obstacles such as a lack of access to education.
In addition to those who have been injured or killed in the conflict, 15.7 million are in need of humanitarian protection or aid, 5 million are refugees, and 7.1 million others have been displaced. In total, nearly a quarter of Ukrainians have been forced from their homes. In light of these events, pursuing an education has become more difficult than ever for people of Ukrainian descent.
This scholarship seeks to support Ukrainian women pursuing degrees in STEM so they have the resources necessary to complete their degrees.
