The Post-Doctoral Fellowship
The Petro Jacyk Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the competition for the annual Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture and Society, to be held at The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at the University of Toronto. The objective of the Fellowship is to support the most promising junior scholars studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby advance academic understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society.
The Petro Jacyk Education Foundation is a private charitable organization, established in 1986 on the basis of an endowment from well-known Toronto businessman and philanthropist Petro Jacyk. Unique among all other Ukrainian institutions in the world, the Foundation has had, and continues to play, a singular role in the development of Ukrainian scholarship and education, and it exerts considerable influence on the process of shaping international opinion about Ukraine. The Jacyk Foundation has been instrumental in the establishment of Ukrainian studies programs and scholarly centres at leading universities throughout North America and in Europe including Harvard University, Columbia University, University of Toronto, University of Alberta, University of London, and Lviv University.
