The war in Ukraine has brought incalculable suffering and loss to the nation of Ukraine. It has also disrupted the college education of many Ukrainian students. Mount St. Joseph University, through its partnership with a university in Dnipro, Ukraine, has been working with several high-achieving Ukrainian students who are proficient in English on a variety of projects. While working on these projects, several members of the Mount community have developed relationships with these students, some of whose stories are featured below. To assist these students and their peers in completing their education, the Mount has established a Ukrainian student relief scholarship fund. The Mount’s goal is to raise scholarship support funding that would enable high-achieving Ukrainian students facing disrupted education to complete their studies at our university.

Meet Helena and Alyona

Hello, I am Helena and I’m from Kherson, Ukraine. Since childhood, I've had a big passion for three areas: linguistics, business, and IT technologies. At the moment, I am fluent in English, German, Russian, and Ukrainian, and am also studying Korean, Polish and Italian. At the same time, I am developing IT and entrepreneurship skills: I got a grant for IT courses at MINT Academy. I am also taking different online courses to develop more skills. I have also designed a concept for a mobile application with leading Ukrainian specialists as part of a UNICEF social entrepreneurship project. Generally, I always get inspired by exploring something new and unusual for me. Helena Dnipro University of Customs and Finance
