Many foreign universities and private funds provide an opportunity for Ukrainian students to receive a scholarship, discount or grant to study abroad. Grants can also be provided by non-governmental institutions (the British Council in the UK, DAAD in Germany). Usually the number of grants provided by one organization is limited, however, the amount of such organizations is big with new programmes constantly emerging. The most well-known are Chevening Program, Cambridge Overseas Trust, University College London (Great Britain), Edmund Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program, Fulbright Graduate Student Program (the USA), Eiffel, Thales Academia (France), Ukrainian-Polish Service for Academic exchange etc.
