Jacyk Distinguished Fellowship in Ukrainian Studies at Harvard University

Jacyk Distinguished Fellowship in Ukrainian Studies at Harvard University

The Jacyk Distinguished Fellowship is designed to bring senior scholars to Harvard University for one academic term of focused research in Ukrainian history, literature, philology, culture, and other related areas of study in the humanities and social sciences fields. While in residence, the Jacyk Distinguished Fellow will use the University's unique resources to work on significant and innovative projects in Ukrainian studies, and in general to further his or her professional development. In addition, the Jacyk Distinguished Fellow will preside over the Petro Jacyk Seminar in Ukrainian Studies, a forum presented as part of the HURI Seminar Series in Ukrainian Studies. The forum shall consist of a formal presentation followed by a round-table discussion on a Ukrainian theme of the fellow’s choosing.

Questions may be addressed to Megan K. Duncan Smith, HURI Programs Coordinator, at  duncansmith@fas.harvard.edu.


To support the scholar's stay at Harvard, the Petro Jacyk Distinguished Research Fellow is provided with a stipend of $5,500 per month to cover the cost of housing, health insurance, and other living expenses for a total of five months. In addition to the stipend, the award provides for the cost of direct roundtrip travel to Harvard University.


Jacyk fellowships support visiting scholars for one academic term: 4 or 5 months, during the period of Harvard's Fall semester or Spring semester.


All senior scholars in the field of Ukrainian studies are eligible to apply. Nominations may also be submitted. Individuals submitting nominations should submit a letter stating the nominees name, current position, field of study, and basis for nomination to the Institute’s Programs Coordinator, Megan K. Duncan Smith, at duncansmith@fas.harvard.edu.

HURI’s Research Fellowships support independent research on topics pertaining to Ukraine while in residence at Harvard. Individuals who hold a doctorate, or its academic equivalent (eg. kandydat nauk), in a field in the humanities or social sciences and who have demonstrated a commitment to Ukrainian studies are eligible to apply. 

Mihaychuk Fellowships are for early career scholars who recently received their doctoral degree or current PhD students who will have successfully defended their dissertation prior to the application deadline. Mid-career scholars who received their PhD more than eight years ago should apply for the HURI Research Fellowship. The biennial Jacyk Distinguished Fellowship is designed for senior scholars in the field of Ukrainian studies.
