For the academic years 2021/2022 and 2022/2023, two additional fellowships each have been awarded to Ukrainian scholars, public intellectuals, and artists through the Wissenschaftskolleg's fellowship program.
Through funds spontaneously granted by the Marga und Kurt Möllgaard-Stiftung and the Stiftung Preußische Seehandlung the Wissenschaftskolleg was to immediately provide three further scholars from Ukraine with financial support.
Furthermore, the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin has joined forces with Ukrainian and international partners to initiate the founding of a Institute for Advanced Study für die Ukraine (UIAS) in Kyiv. In the founding phase under wartime conditions, a virtual structure, the VUIAS, will first be established. The Volkswagen Foundation is supporting this step with funding of 960,000 euros for the first three years.
