The Kennan Institute Proudly Announces Awarded Grants for Ukrainian Scholars and Practitioners

The Kennan Institute is proud to announce that it has awarded $120,000 in emergency grants to Ukrainian scholars and practitioners affected by Russia’s war in the country.

The grants, which will provide assistance to fifteen Kennan Institute alumni and contributors, will help awardees to continue their research and professional activities during the disruptions caused by the war.

Recipients of the funding include alumni, scholars, and practitioners operating from their local cities in Ukraine, as well as those displaced externally and abroad because of the war. These scholars are examining topics including mental health in the country during the crisis, mediation strategies after the war, and the use of history in the war, among many other topics.

Since the 1970s, the Kennan Institute and the Wilson Center has offered scholars, practitioners, and activists around the world research support through its annual grant programs. This emergency assistance will continue that legacy, specifically for Ukrainian scholars and practitioners threatened by the current conflict.
