MSCA4 Ukraine Fellowship for Yeliena Kovalska

We congratulate Yeliena Kovalska (Visiting Fellow / History and Sociology), who has been awarded a MSCA4 (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions) Ukraine Fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

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.
