Kharkiv Osvita Educational Advising Center began its operation in 1992 as a structural unit of Kharkiv regional branch of International Renaissance Foundation, being responsible for administration of international scholarship and English language programs. In February 1999 it was re-registered as a non-profit NGO and has hitherto been continuing to work guided by the principles and values of open society.
Our activities are targeted at both individuals and higher educational institutions. For this period hundreds of HEI students and graduates, teachers and scholars from our region took the opportunity to study, do internships and research in the best universities of USA, Europe, and Canada.
Our Center is officially recognized by the U.S. Department of State as affiliated into international EducationUSA advising network http://www.educationusa.info . We also run a number of international academic exchange programs administered in Ukraine under the auspice of the U.S. Embassy http://ukraine.usembassy.gov/academic_exchanges.html
We are strongly convinced that by encouragingUkrainian educators and academic institutions for international cooperation we do not only foster their individual professional and institutional growth, but also make our contribution into the future development and growth of Ukraine.
