The Jacyk fellowship is funded through a gift to the Institute by the Petro Jacyk Educational Foundation
in Ontario, Canada. Mr. Petro Jacyk, a prominent Canadian businessman who passed away in November 2001, was one of the Institute's most generous benefactors. In addition to his gift to establish the fellowship program, he endowed the position of the Petro Jacyk Bibliographer in Ukrainian Studies at the library of the Ukrainian Research Institute.
