The United Nations estimates that 12 million people have been displaced as a result of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, many of them young people. 

In response to this humanitarian crisis, the University and colleges have come together to create a new University-wide scheme that will support 20 graduate students from Ukraine. The scheme will see the university offer a fee waiver to eligible graduates. Participating colleges will match this contribution by providing accommodation and meals, membership of the Middle Common Room, and a stipend of £7,500 for any student they welcome. The scheme will enable the University to welcome 20 scholars from Ukraine starting their one-year Masters courses at the beginning of the next academic year. 

As a recognised College of Sanctuary, and in association with the University, the academic community at Mansfield is committed to welcoming and providing a home to a talented student from Ukraine who has had their studies disrupted by war. For more information on the scholarship scheme, click here.
