IE University partners with Ukrainian Global University and provides €1 million in scholarships for students from Ukraine

The agreement will help channel the #IEforUkraine Scholarship Fund to the best talent of Ukraine and support them in accessing quality education.

IE Foundation, IE University, and Kyiv School of Economics have signed a Memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate in the framework of the Ukrainian Global University (UGU). It channels the best study opportunities in undergraduate and postgraduate programs at IE University to the top talent from Ukraine. The partnership is a response to the devastating effects of Russia’s war against Ukraine and is aimed to support Ukrainian students with access to higher education to transform and rebuild their country after the war.

Through this partnership with UGU, IE Foundation and IE University will offer the best talent from Ukraine access to the #IEforUkraine Scholarship Fund with an initial installment of €1 million to cover up to 100% of tuition fees for both bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and/or room and board for talented students affected by the war in Ukraine.
