The Relief Fund for Ukrainian Historians displaced by the War, established by the Department of History of the Faculty of History and Arts at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and the German-Ukrainian Historians’ Commission (DUHK), supports 13 historians from Ukraine with their families (see the list).
Within the framework of the assistance fund, scholars from the field of historical sciences are given the opportunity to come to LMU Munich with their families and continue their academic work there. This support was possible due to the help of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Robert Bosch Foundation, and the numerous private donors for their financial support of the project. Donations are still welcome!
The fellows present their research within the Ukrainian Research Seminar@LMU
More than 20 additional applicants were successfully supported to be hosted by partner institutions. The Department of History and the DUHK also supports the scholarship holders in writing further research proposals. For example, the research proposal submitted by Prof. Dr. Martin Schulze Wessel for Dr. Olena Panych to the Henkel Foundation for the project “Trials of Religious Dissidents in the Soviet Union in the 1960s to 1980s” has been approved.
