The Shevchenko Foundation offers the Kobzar Writer's Scholarship annually to a Canadian writer with an advanced manuscript on a Ukrainian Canadian theme. This full tuition scholarship is intended to assist the writer to advance his/her work toward publication.

Canadian writers are encouraged to expand their writing interests through explorations of unique aspects of Ukrainian Canadian immigration history, the cultural and social values of that community and/or political issues and links with Ukraine. Narratives, whether personal or research based, must demonstrate substantial connectedness with Ukrainian Canadian issues and heritage.

Applications for this scholarship must firstly satisfy the admission requirements of the Humber School for Writers.
