Mission Statement

Enhance and create opportunities through education and preserve Ukrainian cultural heritage within and outside of the United States of America.

Our Program

One student – one sponsor at the time –  Since 1967 our program has been fully dependent on contributions, especially those of individual sponsors. Their understanding that the key to self reliance and democracy is through education is reflected in hundreds of letters from scholarship recipients. We are very proud of their achievements and so are their sponsors.  We have helped hundreds upon hundreds of youth to become professionals and productive members of their communities in Brazil, Argentina, Poland and other countries.  Since 1989 our main focus has been and still is on Ukraine, where the need is the greatest.

We have orphaned, disadvantaged young people who are waiting to be sponsored!   We have children from large families. We have abandoned children who are deprived a normal life; we have children whose parents are struggling economically, especially in Ukraine.  We have students who are determined to achieve higher education and are in need of our assistance.  UNWLA, Inc. scholarship recipients range from the first grade to doctoral candidates. They are recommended to us by trusted educators in the countries where our program exists. In Ukraine, we also coordinate our program with the Soyuz Ukrajinok of Ukraine Scholarship Program Committee. 

We are obligated to fulfill sponsors’ wishes in assigning of pupil and/or student. Sponsorship is renewable on an annual basis, there is no long term commitment. All scholarship recipients are required to write to their sponsors.  Won’t you help?

Annual sponsorships range from 110 US $ to 500 US $ (depending on the country and grade of student) and are determined by the exchange rate and cost of living in each country.  However, if you cannot sponsor, please send a donation. All donations will be greatly appreciated. No donation is too small.
