Cambridge-Ukraine StudentshipsThe Cambridge-Ukraine Studentships program was launched in 2010 on the initiative and with financial support of Mr. Dmitry Firtash. This initiative is aimed at allowing access to education at the University of Cambridge to most talented young people from Ukraine who otherwise cannot afford the cost of studying there.
At this stage, the program finances the study of Ukrainian students on one-year postgraduate courses at the University of Cambridge. The studentships cover the University and College fees as well as maintenance, according to financial needs of the student. Additional support may include covering visa fees and airfare to the UK.
Students may choose from a wide variety of nearly 50 courses of study. The studentships are available to citizens of Ukraine who are offered admission to the University of Cambridge. Candidates should have achieved, or be about to achieve, a high enough academic qualification, and proficiency in the English language, to be accepted on their chosen course of study.
The selection of successful applicants is administered by a special committee at the University of Cambridge. The preference is given to students with outstanding academic records and English skills, but also with personal qualities that mark them out as potential leaders capable of making significant contributions to society.
The first five Ukrainian students awarded with the Studentships commenced their studies at the University of Cambridge in October 2011, and shall finish their studies in July 2012. Their courses of study are Conservation Leadership, Modern Society & Global Transformation, Law, European Literature and Russian Studies.
The application period to study in 2012-2013 closed in December 2011. Successful candidates shall receive respective notifications from the University of Cambridge during May-July 2012. Next they will be required to present documents proving they satisfy the conditions for acceptance to study, including knowledge of English.
The continuing financial support from Mr. Firtash and strong interest from Ukrainian students enabled the University of Cambridge to extend the Cambridge-Ukraine Studentships for 2013-2014. The period of applications will start on 3 September 2012 and end on 4 December 2012. Successful candidates will be notified during May-July 2013.
The University of Cambridge, established in 1209, became the fourth University in the world. The impressive lineup of Cambridge graduates includes such outstanding scientists as Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and others and proudly boasts 87 Nobel Prize winners. For the third consecutive year (2010-2012), Cambridge was named the world’s best University according to the QS World University Rankings.
