"As a person who fled the war in Ukraine, I struggled to find my place in Ireland. DCU University of Sanctuary was my only chance to access a higher education. Thanks to the scholarship and lots of other support within the Sanctuary, I will be able to use my skills fully and contribute to Irish society as a way to thank this country for my future work—and to just be the most happy and accomplished person I can be. Most importantly, I met so many kind and talented people at Dublin City University, and these precious connections will always be with me." - Maryna


"The Sanctuary Scholarship has increased my employment opportunities in Ireland. It has been hard to get back to employment, but the exposure afforded to me by Sanctuary will be of great help in my career endeavors." - Joshua
