The Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage offers scholarships in support of University of Saskatchewan graduate students at the MA level, who are working on topics relevant to Ukraine, Ukrainian-Canadian identity, or the Ukrainian experience. MA Scholarships in the amount of $1500 are provided in direct support of the thesis-writing phase for students registered with the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Graduate Studies and enrolled in a graduate degree program. 


In 2017-18, Iryna Kozina, an MA candidate in the Department of History, was awarded a scholarship for her thesis proposal “Prickly Questions: The Yorkton Ukrainian Redemptorists’ Response to Sociocultural Changes in Saskatchewan, Canada (1960-1980).” Iryna explores the writings of the Redeemer’s Voice Press, the Catholic publishing house of the Ukrainian Redemptorists of the Yorkton Province, and how the priests approached changes in the rapidly-evolving 1960s. The expected date of completion is summer-fall 2018.
