So, WHAT or WHO exactly hides under the name Ukraine Global Scholars?
Ukraine Global Scholars (UGS) is a Ukrainian charity organization aimed at helping the most intelligent and motivated Ukrainian students in obtaining high-quality higher education in the best universities in the world.
The founders and heads of the organization are Ukrainians – graduates and students of leading US educational institutions, such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, massachusetts Institute of Technology and many others.
Now a little bit about the numbers…Since the foundation,3 generations of talented Ukrainian students have become finalists of the program, 34 of which have entered 17 best private schools and 7 universities in the USA. The total amount of scholarships received by finalists of Ukraine Global Scholars in American educational institutions for 3 years is more than $ 8 million.
