V) The *University of Leipzig* (
through its International Centre

moment, not able to guarantee support to participants of the European

*hope*, however, that
a) not only for applicants from Leipzig's partner university *Kiewski
nazionalny uniwersitet im. Tarasa Schewtschenko* but from the
*Ukraine* in general special funds might be available,
b) some bursaries for applicants from the following *Eastern European
partner universities* of Leipzig University might become available in

Sofiski Uniwersitet Sw. Kliment Ochridski
Uniwersytet Wrocławski
Uniwersytet Jagiellonski w Krakowie
Universitatea Babeş-Bolyai, Cluj-Napoca
Univerza v Ljubljani
Univerzita Karlova v Praze

Interested people from the *Ukraine* and the above named *partner
universities* are strongly advised to apply for support / a bursary.

For more information see

VI) People coming from EU-Partner Countries may be able to apply for
an *Erasmus + scholarship* (Key Action 103) at their own university.
Please get informed.

VII) All interested people are strongly advised to inform themselves
about support for further education, qualification, specialisation,
professionalisation available at *their own universities*. At many
universities such funding exists, to find out about it might, however,
mean doing some serious research.
