First Researchers Accepted (Emergency Relief Program for Scholars and Students at Risk Following the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia)
Announcement of Acceptance (Emergency Relief Program for Scholars and Students at Risk Following the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia)
On March 30th, the University of Tokyo started a special short-time program to accept students and researchers who were no longer able to maintain a safe place for study or research due to the armed invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
While national and local governments, companies, organizations, etc. are working towards accepting and supporting the refugees, the implementation of this program results from examining what the university can do as a "university that serves the public nature of the world". Since the announcement, we have received inquiries from many students and researchers, and are carefully checking and examining whether or not we can provide a program that suits their needs according to their specialty.
On this occasion, we are pleased to announce that two researchers have been accepted for the first time under this program. One of whom started on 15 April 2022. Both researchers are Ukrainian nationals and have been accepted at the Tokyo College.
We will continue to accept students and researchers while carefully confirming whether or not we can provide an appropriate education and research environment that suits their specialty and requirements.
