During the MSCA4Ukraine Fellowship of one year, Yeliena will continue her research project which she has started during her Visiting Fellowship at the Zukunftskolleg: the “Use of factorial survey design to determine the significance of personal social status characteristics“, mentored by Thomas Hinz, Chair of Empirical Social Research with a Focus on Survey Research at the University of Konstanz .
“Just a year ago, I was forced to leave Ukraine and to change the direction of my research and teaching career”, says Yeliena. “Thanks to a long and very strong partnership between the Department of Sociology of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and the Department of Sociology at the University of Konstanz, I was able to apply for a Visiting Fellowship at the Zukunftskolleg. Since I became part of the Zukunftskolleg, I have received a lot of support and help in my adaptation to the new German academic reality, which was and still is very challenging for me. I learned about the MSCA4Ukraine scholarship from the Zukunftskolleg and then received all the necessary information about the preparation of my application. I still cannot believe that in such a short time I was able to receive this prestigious grant. With many thanks to the whole team of the Zukunftskolleg.”
Yeliena Kovalska has been a Visiting Fellow at the Zukunftskolleg since June 2022.
