Standing with Ukraine: supporting academics and students

As we stand with Ukraine in these difficult and concerning times, here's an overview of our fellowship and
scholarship support available to academics and students who are at risk as a result of the war in

Warwick IAS Visiting Fellowships

Since its inception, the Institute of Advanced Study has operated Visiting Fellowships schemes,
which help the university to create links with researchers from around the globe who will enrich the
academic life of the University and help us achieve our strategic aims.

We now welcome nominations at any time from Warwick colleagues on behalf of academics who
are at risk as a result of the war in Ukraine.

The schemes offer funding for travel, accommodation, some living expenses, research and
administrative support. While the application process is streamlined we note that a visa is commonly
required, and at present this latter process takes several weeks to complete.
In addition to receiving nominations via this route, we are working with Cara (the Council for At-Risk
Academics) - experts at supporting vulnerable academics into fellowships - with whom we have
worked closely in the past.

Sanctuary Scholarships

The University's Sanctuary Scholarships schemes will remain open. We welcome
applications from prospective Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate
Research students who are at risk as a result of the war in Ukraine
