The Monash Rudewych Year 12 Ukrainian Language Scholarships received significant new funding for 2014 when Victor and Maria Rudewych boosted their funding for the Scholarships from $20,000 in 2013 to $32,000 in 2014.
The Scholarships were first offered in 2008, when Victor and Maria Rudewych, who also sponsor many other educational and youth initiatives, resolved to join the Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies at Monash University in encouraging young people in Australia to study Ukrainian language and culture by establishing four annual scholarships, each valued at $2,500.
Six Year 12 students received the scholarship in 2014: Inna Nikolayeva, Yuri Bakay and Andrew Bernyk from Victoria, and Dariya Vovnenko, Mark Levenets and Peter Sheremeta from New South Wales. Eight year 12 students, five from Victoria and three from New South Wales, won the scholarship in 2013. On 12 April 2013 the Ukrainian Studies Centre at Monash, the sponsors and the peak organisation for Ukrainian community schools in Australia, the Ukrainian Council Education of Australia (UECA), resolved to restructure the scholarships. The agreement was reached at a meeting of Mr Victor Rudewych with Professor Marko Pavlyshyn, Director of the Ukrainian Studies Centre, and Ms Orysia Stefyn, Chair of the UECA. The new structure is designed to begin offering encouragement to students from Year 7 onward.
The terms of the Scholarships in their new form will be advertised on the Monash Ukrainian Studies web page several months in advance of the due date for the receipt of applications, which will be in December 2013.
