Poland and The War in Ukraine Lecture by Maciej Olchawa, PhD

On Monday, Oct. 3rd, 2022, Mr. Maciej Olchawa, PhD., the first Kosciuszko Foundation Scholar at Loyola University Chicago presented a lecture “Poland and the war in Ukraine”. The KF in collaboration with the College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola University Chicago, has created the Polish Studies Visiting Lecturer Program, also known as the Kosciuszko Foundation Scholar.

As part of the program in the 2022-23 academic year, Mr. Olchawa will conduct research and teach about Poland in International Relations, emphasizing Poland’s relations with the United States, Russia, and Ukraine. Mr. Olchawa will focus his lectures and class discussions on Poland and attract a wider group of students who may be interested in what is happening in Ukraine and the region, which is why the course description frames the topic within a broader context.

The Kosciuszko Foundation Scholar is a new initiative offered by the College of Arts and Sciences at Loyola University Chicago, sponsored by the Kosciuszko Foundation from the Loyola University Chicago Polish Studies Fund, established thanks to the generosity of Bozena and John McLees and Professor John Kulczycki. Much gratitude to Mr. & Mrs. McLees, as well as Professor Kulczycki, for the generous donation which made the program possible.

The KF Scholarship Programs won’t grow without your support. Please consider making a donation HERE.
