by Eugene Serba
The Scholarship Committee of the Ukrainian National Association (UNA) is pleased to announce the establishment of a new scholarship for students. The Maria and
Taras Slevinsky Scholarship will provide students who are studying nursing full time $1,000 per year. Eligibility for the new scholarship includes the following criteria: 1) students must have a UNA qualifying policy; 2) students must be studying nursing full time; 3) students must be enrolled as full-time undergraduate students at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada; and 4) students must submit a completed UNA scholarship application and provide a brief essay.
The scholarship is named in honor of Maria and Taras Slevinsky. Mr. Slevinsky passed away in July in Connecticut. His wife of over 70 years, Maria Slevinsky, and his granddaughter, Lydia Kowinko, chose to honor Mr. Slevinsky by establishing a UNA scholarship in Mr. Slevinsky’s name. Mr. Slevinsky was a secretary of UNA
Branch 93 in Bridgeport, Conn., and was active in the Ukrainian community in Connecticut. The UNA’s Scholarship Committee extended a special thank you to the Slevinsky family for establishing the Maria and Taras Slevinsky Scholarship.
