Numerous students and researchers who had to flee Ukraine in the past weeks have reached out to us with a request for support. We have already been able to welcome some scientists and their families. We are also in contact with others who face similar challenges. In reaction to this, the Foundation of the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) has established the Viadrina Support and Emergency Fund for students and researchers who had to flee from the country. In a joint effort, we want to make it easier for the people who are affected by the war in Ukraine to arrive in Frankfurt (Oder), ensure their safety, and offer them prospects of studying at the European University Viadrina as well as opportunities for accessing the German education system.

Collected funds will be used for:

  • accommodation in student dormitories and rented apartments upon arrival in Frankfurt (Oder)
  • provision of assistance with daily living needs
  • psychological counseling
  • scholarships
  • integration of scientists into the research activities of the Viadrina through fellowships.

In order to be able to provide both short-term emergency assistance and sustainable help in securing educational biographies, we rely on your support. We kindly ask you to contribute to the Viadrina Support and Emergency Fund for students and researchers who had to flee from Ukraine.
