First of all, scholarships are the gift of love and trust to UCU and its students. Today it is extremely important to feel your worth, to know that someone depends on you to do right. It is equally valuable to understand that at UCU there are people who care about your future and who are truly and sincerely happy when you achieve success and who are ready to support and help you in your efforts. This is what I have understood and felt while studying at the Ukrainian Catholic University

Make your own contribution and join in the creation of a new generation of scholars and public leaders today, who will continue the work of Bohdan Solchanyk and the Heavenly Hundred!   


Bohdan Solchanyk, a young scholar and lecturer at UCU, was killed by a sniper at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) in Kiev on the 20th of February 2013 during the Revolution of Dignity. Bohdan was preparing his Ph.D. thesis “Electoral Practices in a Small Western Ukrainian City, 1965-2006”. From the first days of Euromaidan, Bohdan Solchanyk was among those activists who defended their right to dignity in a peaceful way and protested against the Yanukovych regime. 

Yaroslav Hrytsak, a leading historian of Eastern Europe, defines Bohdan like this: “Now we can only imagine, how far he could have come in his scholarly career. Foreign scholars would have had to learn his surname to properly pronounce it at international scholarly conferences. His list of publications would be long and rich in important works. He would have had a good life and honored recognition. All this will not happen. The bullet ended his life”.
