Bishop Andriy Rabiy:

“Earlier today I had a privilege to join a LIVE Zoom Meeting with representatives of UCU (Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv) student organizations, moderated by Oles’ Kuzma. It was very interesting to listen to the young men and women, what they have accomplished, and shared their goals and dreams. I must note that current generation of Ukrainian students is far different from the time I was a student (it makes me feel very old now ). First, they were speaking English very well. Some spoke with a lovely and beautiful British accent. When I was a student, we learned well, “London is the capital of Great Britain”, how to write and read . Second, they seem to be very excited about the various projects that they are involved in: ecology, assistance to the poor and soldiers, student government, etc. We did not have any of it in our time. Third, they are FREE people. They do not have the baggage of the Soviet mentality and fear. They are looking forward, they look into the future, they are optimistic. They are the ones that will make things to be different. Ukraine does have a future with this new generation of young people. I had a feeling of great pride for them. People, things, and circumstances are changing. Let’s give the young a chance to make the world better! It seems that they know-how.

“I too listened to these remarkable, bright, and talented students. Oles and Roman thank you for all your efforts in making this conference call happen”.

UPDATES coming

Thank you to all students that participated in today’s Virtual Meeting. Thank you to all our friends and donors in USA and Canada, for your prayerful and financial support!

You can help support students or UCU!

Even a humble contribution from you is a very important sign of your trust and support of our academic community. Your moral, material and spiritual support give us great encouragement to keep moving forward and to create a successful future today. You can support UCU in various ways: donate money, support a student scholarship, include the university in your will, donate a work of art or collection of books, become a volunteer at the university, attend a charity event supporting UCU or start your own endowment. Each of these ways of donating is valuable for UCU, and the university is grateful to each and all its benefactors.

Establish a scholarship 

UCUniversity does not receive any financial support from the Ukrainian government and in the funding of its educational and scientific programs is entirely dependent on the help of charitable foundations and private donors. The average expenditure for an undergraduate student at UCU is about US $ 3300 per year. Each year, UCU sets the price of student payments at a level that the majority of students can afford, and these tuition payments vary by program, ranging from about $500 in some humanities to $2000 in computer science, for the academic year 2019-2020. Since those student payments are much less than the expenditure of $3300 per student, the University needs to cover the total educational expenditure from donor scholarships/grants. MORE

Teachers’ scholarships

UCU strives to create the optimal conditions for the professional development of our teachers, quality academic research, participation in international conferences, joint projects, and teaching and internships at leading world universities.

The tuition charged for students to study at UCU covers approximately 1/3 of the real cost. So UCU receives the rest of the funds needed for the university’s activities, including staff salaries, maintaining infrastructure, and new development projects, thanks to the support of our partners – charitable foundations and a network of private benefactors throughout the world.

Creating stipends for our professors, teachers or academic researchers is a very effective way to help the university and make a concrete contribution to the support of the country’s academic elite. MORE
