Donate for students from Ukraine
1st July 2022
Since February 2022, Russian troops have been invading Ukraine, many civilians have been caught up in the conflict, and the situation remains critical, with significant damage being caused in many parts of the country.
As the war situation in the Ukraine continues, it is becoming more and more difficult to secure places to study and research in the region, and the importance and necessity to support Ukrainian students is increasing more than ever before.
For this reason, on April 13th, the University of Tsukuba announced the “Acceptance of students from Ukraine” and began providing financial support (travel and living expenses support, etc.) and other student assistance initiatives, and has received more than 450 enquiries so far.
Although it is difficult to accept all of these people, the situation in the region and in the evacuation centers are more difficult than we could have imagined, and we would like to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to continue their studies. However, the situation is far from satisfactory.
Therefore, we sincerely ask for your warm support to help Ukrainian students who wish to study at the University of Tsukuba.
President of the University of Tsukuba
