  • Scholarship Description
  • The HIAS Chicago Ludmila Smolyansky Empowerment Scholarship for Women is awarded to a female student from Russia, the Former Soviet Union or Ukraine who is entering or continuing her undergraduate studies. The scholarship seeks to empower a young woman to find success and passion in her career by encouraging her to explore fields of study where women are typically under-represented. This fund was created by Julie Smolyansky, President & CEO of Lifeway Foods, and Edward Smolyansky, CFO of Lifeway Foods.

    Due to the limitations of available funds, former winners of HIAS Chicago scholarships are not eligible to receive the same category of award. Undergraduate applicants must plan to begin or continue post-secondary education on a full-time basis in a college, university, or technical school in the upcoming academic year.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
