REEI and Indiana University stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Thanks to the IU-Ukraine Nonresidential Scholars Program, 32 scholars in Ukraine will be able to continue their research, writing and teaching supported by a stipend, library access, and opportunities for collaboration and professional development during the 2022/23 academic year.
Faculty from across the IUB campus have generously agreed to partner with the nonresidential fellows, and some also contributed funds to support the initiative. The nonresidential visiting scholars and IU faculty partners will attend monthly virtual workshops to share work in progress and build intellectual community. The nonresidential scholars will also be invited to virtually present their work at the 2023 4th Annual Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian Studies Conference at IU.
REEI and the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies will administer the IU-Ukraine Nonresidential Scholars Program with administrative and financial support from across campus, including the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs, the Kelley School of Business, IU Libraries, Maurer School of Law, School of Education, Office of the Vice President for Research, Borns Jewish Studies Program, Department of Germanic Studies, and the Food Systems Studies Emerging Areas of Research program.
We at REEI are gratified to coordinate this activity in support of the scholars and institutions of higher education in Ukraine who have shown such resilience in spite of the violence of war.
