American University Kyiv (AUK) is providing educational opportunities for Ukrainians with 75% of tuition and fees paid through scholarship. The university is partnering with Arizona State University (ASU) to be the first institution in Ukraine that conforms to American higher education standards.

Enrollment will open in the fall of 2022 for online programs. Students attending AUK will also be able to enroll in classes offered by ASU and attain a dual degree from the two institutions. Scholarships will cover 75% of up to two years for undergraduates and 60% of one year for graduate students.

The array of opportunities for higher education is being offered by the university as a response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. AUK seeks to meet the economic and location needs of its students, as many Ukrainians have been relocated due to the war and are therefore unable to attend classes in person.

President of AUK Dr. Rick Shangraw stated in a press release that the university seeks to strengthen the future of the country and its young generation in the midst of conflict. The university hopes to welcome students to a physical campus in a post-war climate.
