Sutaruk Student Scholarships Reach $500,000!

March 1, 2016 – Ten years ago the Sutaruk Scholarship Fund was established by the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation and the Sutaruk Foundation in order to educationally benefit and raise the Ukrainian local, national, and cultural consciousness of students in the communities of Dubno, Netishyn and Slavuta.  These ancestral cities of the Sutaruks are located in the Rivne and Khmelnytskyj oblasts.

Since the inception of the program, the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation has awarded over a half million dollars in scholarships to 400-500 students entering or enrolled in university learning.

Annually, students participate in a competitive, application and in-person process.  The program recognizes academic achievement and English proficiency on the part of students.  Representatives of the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation from Lviv are engaged and monitor the application and award process.

The Sutaruk Foundation, established in 2003, honors the memory of Alex Sutaruk and his parents, John and Catherine Sutar, and their commitment to self-reliance, independence, hope for the future, and education. The foundation invests in programs that fulfill these qualities in four specific categories: environmental preservation, university scholarship for deserving students, improvement in quality of life for senior citizens and the needy, and a stronger Ukraine.

John A. Kun, U.S.-Ukraine Foundation Vice President/COO, stated, “This 10 year milestone indicates the long-term commitment of both organizations toward the education of youth in three communities in Ukraine.  It has been a pleasure working with the Sutaruk Foundation, and especially with Kathy Meyer, the Sutaruk Foundation’s Coordinator during this entire period.  By helping one student at a time, this scholarship program is part of the broader mission of strengthening U.S.-Ukraine relations.  I encourage our friends and donors to financially support this program and others that the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation sponsors in Ukraine.”

Please contact USUF if you would like more information on the Foundaiton's educational programs, or if you would like to assist a current effort or intiiate a new one.
