Меморіальні лекції УНІГУ

На додачу до щотижневих семінарів, Український науковий інститут Гарвардського університету регулярно спонсорує та проводить конференції, симпозіуми та інші наукові заходи. Не менш важливою формою заохочення українознавчих досліджень є й так звані меморіальні (або пропам'ятні) лекції, які носять імена видатних українських меценатів зі США та Канади – Василя та Марії Петришиних, Зеновії Сохор Перрі, Богдана Юрія Кравціва та Петра Яцика. Проведення цих лекцій вимагає додаткового фінансування. Як відбувається цей процес?

Remembering Omeljan Pritsak on His 100th Birthday

April 7, 2019, marks the 100th anniversary of Omeljan Pritsak's birth. Pritsak was one of the founders of Ukrainian studies and the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard. An eminent Turkologist and professor at Harvard University, Pritsak's vision for a program of study on his native Ukraine helped ensure the West could become better acquainted with Ukrainian history and culture.

In honor of what would have been the scholar's 100th birthday, we're posting a biographical sketch of Omeljan Pritsak by Lubomyr Hajda. This article was published forty years ago in the journal Harvard Ukrainian Studies.

Her research focuses on the intersection of Japan and Ukraine, particularly through the lives of the Ukrainian diaspora in the Far East. On Thursday, April 4, she will present, "Making a 'Little Ukraine' in China: A Historical, Intellectual, and Social Portrait of the Diaspora (1897-1949)." The event will take place in the Omeljan Pritsak Memorial Library at HURI (34 Kirkland Street) at 12:15 p.m. and is open to the public.

Khomenko recently answered some questions to give us more insight into her research and the upcoming talk.

What Does an Independent Orthodox Church Mean for Ukraine?

January 5, 2019, marked the beginning of a new era for religion in Ukraine. The newly formed Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) received a Tomos, or decree of autocephaly, from the Patriarch of Constantinople. Parishes are now individually choosing to transition to the OCU.

Tornike Metreveli, a scholar who studies religion in Ukraine, recently gave a Seminar in Ukrainian Studies at Harvard. Here, he answers some questions about Orthodoxy in Ukraine and the significance of these recent events.

The 2019 Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute offers unique courses in Ukrainian studies taught by Harvard and visiting faculty.

Once accepted into the program, applicants must then complete the Harvard Summer School registration process.

Tuition for HUSI is commensurate with tuition rates charged for all other Harvard Summer School courses. Tuition for 2019 and the cost of on-campus room and board are posted on the Harvard Summer School website

Fees and Financial Aid

Tuition and fees are all payable to Harvard Summer School.

HURI offers a limited number of full and partial scholarships to students with academic promise who express a need for financial assistance. To be considered for these scholarships, students must apply by Monday, March 11, 2019 and include a statement of request for fee reduction with supporting explanation.

Eligible students requesting HURI financial aid who intend to take Ukrainian for Reading Knowledge should also apply for summer FLAS (Foreign Language Area Studies). See more information below.

Outside Funding Opportunities

FLAS: Ukrainian for Reading Knowledge is a FLAS-eligible language course. Harvard and non-Harvard graduate and undergraduate students may thus apply for FLAS funding through Harvard's Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies and through their home institution, provided it participates in the US Department of Education sponsored program. FLAS applicants must also be either US citizens or permanent residents to be eligible. For more information regarding FLAS funding and application, please contact Donna Griesenbeck.

Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships (Undergraduate and Graduate)

The deadline to apply for FLAS funding through the Davis Center is Friday, February 9, 2019. FLAS applicants can also apply separately for HURI’s financial aid.

Additional sources: US and international students are encouraged to inquire at centers for international experience or student assistance at their home institutions. Canadian students may be able to receive help from the Ontario Student Assistance Program. It offers a mix of grants and loans for students taking classes at approved institutions.
