Ukrainian Studies Internships and Travel Grants

For students in Papers SL 9 and SL 10 who wish to travel to Ukraine over the Christmas or Easter vacations to improve their Ukrainian language skills and explore contemporary Ukrainian culture first-hand, Cambridge Ukrainian Studies offers a select number of small grants to help defray the cost of airfare. We also now help facilitate internship placements at leading cultural and political institutions in Ukraine.

'Not knowing Ukrainian would have denied me access to all of the experiences I prized most about my trip. Letting the language fall from usage, or from academic interest, would be to fossilize and bury a nation that has so much to offer.' A 2011-12 travel grant recipient

'My time in Ukraine was incredibly valuable in many senses and did not only back up the cultural knowledge needed for Paper SL 9. Talking to people personally helped me to understand the inequalities of European immigration legislation, which is biased against Ukraine; socio-linguistic issues; and the way politics impacts on everyday business decisions.' A 2009-10 travel grant recipient
