UCCSVI Announcement of ESL Tuition and Books Funding Support

Many Ukrainians who have left their home country under conditions of extreme urgency as a result of a war crisis are in need of rapid English language acquisition as a crucial aspect of adaptation and integration. While free ESL programs exist in our community, individual scheduling remains a challenge for some. With this in mind, UCCSVI is committing $20,000 to support Ukrainian newcomers to help pay for their ESL studies.
