The “Pauli Ukraine Project”: support for scientists who stay in Ukraine (upon nomination). The “Pauli Ukraine Project” brings financial support for Ukrainian colleagues in mathematics, physics, computer science and related (STEM) fields, who stay and continue research in these conditions. The Wolfgang Pauli Institute (also see the flyer) implements “Pauli scholarships” with a monthly flat rate of 1000 EUR (for “Postdocs” of all age) and 750 EUR for PhD students). The scholarship holder gets the money transferred to an account in Ukraine (bank transfer works well) without being obliged to be physically present in Austria. These “pre/postdoctoral research training” scholarships are within the frame and rules of the usual “WPI thematic programs” that the Austrian ministry of science (BM.BWF) co-funds. There is no broad open “call” since the available budget is small (initially 50 000 EUR) and since the WPI funding scheme requires the scholarship holder to fit into a “WPI thematic program” where one of the co- organisers has to propose potential grantees who work in the broad research field of the thematic program.

The Max Planck Society:
The Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA) established the Shevchenko Emergency Fund and offers non-residential fellowships to scholars, writers, and artists located in Ukraine who need support in order to continue their work
