UCL launches new Fellowships supporting academics displaced by the conflict in Ukraine

21 March 2022

UCL has launched an Academic Sanctuary Fellowship Scheme to support academics being displaced as a result of the crisis in Ukraine following the invasion by the Russian Federation.


On 17 March UCL announced plans for the Academic Sanctuary Fellowship Scheme, as well as UCL's Ukraine Response Fund which is providing much-needed financial support for all of UCL’s response initiatives. 

To deliver the scheme, UCL will work in partnership with the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara), with whom the university has a longstanding partnership, to maximise the support.
