Scholars from around the world come to Harvard for focused research on projects in Ukrainian history, literature, philology, and related areas of study. Fellows also participate in the scholarly life of the University and offer a formal presentation.
In line with University efforts to advance knowledge while safeguarding the health of its community, HURI will continue to hold its events virtually this semester. Please note that HURI staff will work on campus on a reduced schedule and that the Institute building is open only to Harvard faculty, staff, and students until further notice.
Please note: We will not be accepting applications for academic year 2021-2022. Due to the pandemic and related travel restrictions, 2020-2021 fellowship stays were postponed for one year. We will begin accepting applications for academic year 2022-2023 in the fall of 2021.
HURI Fellowships offer a highly stimulating atmosphere for young scholars to develop and present their research. Having the opportunity to discuss ideas with some of the most prominent scholars in Ukrainian Studies on a daily basis or participate in the Institute's inspiring weekly seminars was as close to an ideal scholarly environment as one could wish for.
