HURI Research Fellowships for 2016-2017

The Eugene and Daymel Shklar Research Fellowships in Ukrainian Studies

The Ukrainian Studies Fund Research Fellowships in Ukrainian Studies

The Jaroslaw and Nadia Mihaychuk Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Ukrainian Studies

HURI's Research Fellowships bring scholars from the international academic community to Harvard for focused research on projects in Ukrainian history, literature, philology, culture, and other related areas of study in the humanities and social sciences fields. In addition to carrying out their own research in residence, fellows participate in the scholarly life of the University during Harvard's academic year, and offer a formal presentation based on original research.

HURI's Research Fellowships are supported by the generous annual gifts of the Eugene and Daymel Shklar Foundation, the Ukrainian Studies Fund, Incorporated, and by the Dr. Jaroslaw and Nadia Mihaychuk Fellowship Fund endowment at Harvard University.


Individuals who hold a doctorate in one of the fields listed above and who have demonstrated a commitment to Ukrainian studies are eligible to apply. Those individuals who have received their Ph.D. or its academic equivalent (e.g., Kandydat nauk) within the past eight to ten years are especially encouraged to apply.


The fellowships provide a stipend of $3,300 per month to cover the cost of housing, health insurance, and other living expenses. In addition to the stipend, the awards provide for the cost of direct roundtrip travel to Harvard University.

Fellowship Tenure:

Requests for residence for periods from three to eight months will be considered; adjustments in the requested time-frame may be made at the time of award. The average tenure for a fellow has been four months, the period of either Harvard's Fall Semester or Spring Semester.

The selection committee requests that applicants indicate whether the proposed research project can contribute to the Institute’s ongoing research on the Mapa: Digital Atlas of Ukraine. The stated interest of the selection committee does not in any way preclude consideration of applications from scholars whose research will not have a spatial component.
