Tel Aviv University (TAU) is doing its bid to help Ukrainian students who have been affected by the Russia-Ukraine war. The university has launched a fund to help displaced Ukrainian students get back on their feet after their studies were abruptly halted by the war.

The Emergency Fellowship Fund for Ukrainian Graduate Students is the result of a fundraising drive called to support Ukrainian students and researchers with immediate refuge and assistance to continue their studies.

Current students and the alumni of Tel Aviv University will also participate in a fundraising campaign called Cycle for Scholarships between April 3 to April 10, 2022.

Funds raised will support students at the master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral levels, and cover tuition, living and insurance for six months.


The university will facilitate recipients of the emergency fund with the transition process into Israel, ensuring that it will be as smooth and quick as possible.

“TAU is already in contact with the Ukrainian Embassy in Israel and the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine, as well as with their academic counterparts, to facilitate the process and ensure successful applicants are able to reach Israel as soon as possible,” said the university.
