Slavic department establishes Solomea Pavlychko Stipend
by Maxim Tarnawsky
TORONTO - On the initiative of Prof. George Luckyj, the department of Slavic languages and literatures at the University of Toronto has established the Solomea Pavlychko Stipend.
This stipend will be awarded to a scholar or writer from Ukraine who will come to the University of Toronto for a period of creative work and research. The money raised for this purpose will be used in its entirety for the support of the stipend recipient.
The size of the stipend and the possibility of further stipends in subsequent years will depend on the amount that can be raised. The selection of a stipend recipient and all decisions regarding this stipend will be made by a committee created for this purpose in the department of Slavic languages and literatures.
Ms. Pavlychko, who died on December 31, 1999, was an outstanding and productive scholar. Her scholarship is represented by numerous scholarly works in Ukrainian and English and by her literary translations into Ukrainian. Beyond her published work, she examplified the excellent cooperation and interaction between literary specialists in Ukraine and those outside Ukraine.
