Ukraine’s educational system was heavily compromised by the Russian invasion – university campuses were damaged or destroyed, 100s of thousands of students and professors are displaced.
Support for world-class EDUCATION is critical for rebuilding Ukraine, developing human capital, and boosting the economy.
We strive to:
- Ensure student/professional outreach and engagement during the war
- Offer global excellence in educational content
UGF is a not-for-profit impact initiative coordinated by K.FUND non-profit charity. We run under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Education of Ukraine with the grant support of the Ukrainian Startup Fund
We invite the brightest minds from across the globe willing to commit to 3 hours of lectures per semester (online) for the Ukrainian audience.
