They live, study, and work with us; they are members of our university community, and now they need our help. “They” are UP students and employees from Ukraine, whose lives have been completely disrupted by the war. Many of them are now finding themselves without financial means or the support of their families. Thus UP has launched a public collection to support those in need.

There are more than 160 students and employees from Ukraine presently at Palacký University. “They are our colleagues, students, co-workers, who have found themselves in difficult life situations due to war. They are members of the UP academic community, and this is why we consider it our duty to help them. We are using various means to help, and a public collection is one of them. I believe that our alumni and other friends of UP will also be happy to help,” said UP Rector Martin Procházka.

UP students and employees who are Ukrainian nationals affected by the entry of Russian Federation troops into Ukraine and who need help can apply for support from the public fund via completing an online form. Funds will be then disbursed in the form of a contribution from the public fund.

Palacký University is helping students and employees affected by the war in Ukraine by various means. It has already offered students a one-time special stipend in the amount of CZK 10,000, for which they can also re-apply; offered employees interest-free loans; and is also offering them other forms of non-financial aid. UP Management has also decided that during April it will provide students disrupted by the military conflict with free meals in UP dining halls; the tab to be picked up by the university.
