Help Stetson Sponsor Ukraine Faculty and Students

Stetson University and faculty in its program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (SPREES) announced plans to sponsor Ukrainian students and faculty displaced by Russia's war against Ukraine. Students will be offered room, board, travel expenses and an opportunity to continue their studies in the United States. A university faculty member or recent PhD from Ukraine will receive a yearlong visiting scholar appointment to the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence at Stetson.

With the launch of a short, intensive fundraising campaign in March 2022, Stetson seeks to fund four Ukrainian students as well as one faculty member, welcoming them into a community with a 64-year history in Ukraine and deep partnerships in the region due to our SPREES program. Since 2006, nearly 70 students have studied abroad in Ukraine.
