Jewish Galicia and Bukovina offers fellowships to doctoral and post-doctoral students from both Israel and Ukraine for research projects connected to Jewish history in this region. The fellowships awarded Ukrainian scholars also support their stay in Israel for one year to advance their research. We see great importance on awarding these fellowships and seek to establish a leading role for Israeli academia in studying these communities.
In 2010 two doctoral fellowships were awarded to Ukrainian students of the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv. With the assistance of the fellowship they spent a year (2011-2012) studying at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. Read below about the dissertation of thier research.
