For many years, the Ukrainian Society of Ivan Franko has offered scholarships to our young, aspiring graduates. Scholarship applications are available in March of each year with selections taking place in June. Application forms are mailed to all Senior Secondary Schools in Richmond and posted on our website.
We offer Post-Secondary and Cultural scholarships. We require each applicant to complete the scholarship application, attach a transcript of grades, two letters of reference (one from the school, the other from a person within the Ukrainian community) and an essay to describe why one deserves the scholarship.
Scholarships for 2019
The Ukrainian Community Society of Ivan Franko is pleased to offer two types of scholarships. These scholarships are directed towards students between the ages of 13 and 18.
Type I: Post Secondary Scholarship. For post secondary study at an approved college or university in the amount of $1,000.00.
Type II: Cultural Scholarship. For the study of Ukrainian culture and/or language in an approved program to the maximum of $500.00.
We invite worthy candidates to review the 2019 Youth Scholarship Application (click to view). A letter of reference is required from a school representative which could be a teacher, counsellor or administrator. The application form for Type I or Type II must also be completed by the candidate.
The deadline for the application is Friday, May 17, 2019 for both types of scholarships. Questions or concerns can be addressed to Tanya Zukewich at 604-241-2300.
