The #ScienceForUkraine Initiative
 

March 1, 2022, the Bibliotheca Hertziana has condemned Russia’s attack on Ukraine and published a call for doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships for researchers in the field of art history who are at risk in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, independently from their nationality. The denomination of the #ScienceForUkraine Fellowships honors the ScienceForUkraine network that academics created at amazing pace across the globe, and which will be a model for future actions in support of scholars at risk.

#ScienceForUkraine Fellowships

The Bibliotheca Hertziana is pleased to host Ukrainian and Russian scholars who work on contemporary, modern, and early modern art.
