Lviv National University of Ivan Franko continues to support its students who suffered from active hostilities

With the cooperation of the international relations departments of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and the Chemnitz University of Technology, 121 students of our University received a social scholarship from a German partner for two to three months. In general, the partner university paid the students of LNU named after Ivan Franko scholarships for 71,200 euros.

This initiative was implemented as part of the joint project “Educational bridge Chemnitz-Lviv” in the program “Digital Ukraine: ensuring academic success in times of crisis” of the German Academic Exchange Service with the support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Among other things, the project is aimed to support various categories of students whose financial situation has undergone significant changes as a result of the war, in particular, to enable them, despite all the challenges, to continue obtaining a quality education.

Due to forced relocation, loss of family members or housing, lack of a primary source of income, etc.,many students and their families find themselves in a difficult financial situation, which makes it hard for them to meet even the most basic needs that harm their academic performance.

The Chemnitz-Lviv Educational Bridge project was designed to create comfortable conditions for such students to continue their studies.

Scholars emphasize the importance of project implementation.

So, Kateryna, a student of the faculty of international relations, shares her emotions: “To say that I am amazed is an understatement because until the very end I did not believe that I would be able to receive such an amount. In such times, it is important to know that there is an opportunity to build one’s future, which is where the scholarship will come in handy.”

“I am very grateful to the Chemnitz University of Technology for the help I received. I am already developing a clear plan on how I will spend these funds,” says Arsen, a student of the Faculty of Journalism.

Kateryna, a student of the Faculty of Foreign Languages, also emphasizes the importance of such support: “I would like to sincerely thank you once again for the opportunity and all the efforts spent. This scholarship has helped my financial situation a lot. Especially since a new semester is coming soon, new books, and it will be more useful than ever.”

We sincerely hope that in this challenging situation, the funds received will help students create the most comfortable conditions for obtaining an education.We wish them further academic and personal success.

Together to victory!
