    For those who understand the importance of academic freedom to a free and prosperous society, the European Humanities University (EHU) is a beacon of hope—the only Belarusian university that has succeeded in escaping the Belarusian government's ideological control—and an engine for the future integration of Belarus into the family of democratic nations.

    Based in Vilnius since its forced closure in Minsk in 2004, EHU provides students from Belarus and the region with an education in the humanities and social sciences in a free and democratic environment—an opportunity no longer available in Belarus today.

    Friends of EHU are committed to:

    • Supporting EHU so that it can fulfill its mission of providing a high quality liberal arts education that stresses personal responsibility, critical inquiry, and academic freedom
    • Educating students from Belarus to use their talents to move their country in the direction of openness and democracy so that it could rejoin the family of democratic nations

    Please consider joining Friends of EHU, a US-based 501(c)(3) organization registered in Washington DC, by making a gift to support EHU. Your gift can help cover the costs of tuition and accommodations, and provide a monthly allowance for living expenses and health insurance to a promising EHU student.

    By joining Friends of EHU and making a donation today, you can give a student from Belarus the gift of academic freedom.

White Professor of Political Science at Emory University and Visiting Scholar at Harvard University Dr. Thomas F. Remington.
