In a show of solidarity, Ukrainian academics and graduate students have been invited to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to continue their research.

Suitable Ukrainian professors will receive monthly stipends of up to $2,800, as well as free room and board in an on-campus residence for a four-month period.

Qualifying graduate students currently pursuing master’s degrees and doctoral degrees at Ukrainian institutes of higher learning will receive a monthly stipend of $2,000 plus free board in the dormitories.

At the outbreak of the war, dean Guy Harpaz reached out to the university’s students of Ukrainian origin who have been personally or whose families have been directly affected by the war to offer immediate financial, emotional and academic support.

The school is also inviting Ukrainian citizens currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree to attend its Rothberg International School free of charge and to partake in English-language courses. This offer includes a living stipend and freeboard, based on available space.

At a ceremony hoisting a Ukrainian flag over the Jerusalem campus, university president Professor Asher Cohen said, “We at the Hebrew University are deeply troubled by the crisis unfolding in Ukraine, and send a message of support and strength to the people of Ukraine. Our heart is with the Ukrainian people.”
