Platon G.

The main goal of this Foundation is to support biomedical research development in Ukraine. Jointly with the Medicine and Biology Section of the Shevchenko Scientific Society, the Foundation’s Review Committee annually awards the prestigious Platon Kostyuk Award to young biomedical scientists working in Ukraine with less than 10 years of work experience following their PhD dissertation defense.

The WIRA Scholar Program is a Faculty Development Program (FDP) to provide opportunity for new, promising faculty members from Ukrainian agricultural universities for a professional development in curriculum improvement and teaching capacity.

The main goals of the FDP are:

  • expand knowledge and expertise in their fields of study
  • stimulate adoption of new changes in their home universities in program development, academic crediting, implementation of new teaching techniques
  • provide a link for on-going academic, research, and outreach exchanges between home universities and Penn State University

The Faculty Development Program provides university instructors with a semester-long opportunity to expand their knowledge and expertise in their academic field by attending classes and working with the College of Agricultural Sciences faculty members.

Due to impacts of COVID-19, The College of Agricultural Sciences at the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) has suspended the open competition for the Woskob International Research in Agriculture Scholar Program (WIRA) for the 2020-2021 academic year.
