Ukrainian Emerging Leaders is a scholarship program for Ukrainian students, which the university launched back in 2017. Since then, the prestigious institution has produced several sets. This program is aimed primarily at reformers, politicians, lawyers, entrepreneurs, creators of social projects, leaders of public organizations.

Fellows will have the opportunity to attend lectures at Stanford. To learn about approaches to solving various problems around the world, they will visit technology firms based in Silicon Valley. They are provided with a scholarship for the entire duration of the program (10 months). It covers tuition, relocation and housing costs in the Bay Area. The organizers will, among other things, pay for the visa processing and the costs of the round trip.

The program came about thanks to the idea of ​​JSK Fellowship fellows Alexander and Ekaterina Akimenko. While studying at Stanford, they noticed that quite a few Ukrainians study here, so they decided to change this situation.

“We took courses at the Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI), talked with teachers there and offered them this idea - it coincided with their own aspirations,” says Alexander. He and his wife conceived the concept of the program, which was first endorsed at university by FSI Director Michael McFaul and CDDRL Director Francis Fukuyama.
