About the institution

The Shevchenko Scientific Society is an organization of scholars and researchers working in various disciplines and dedicated mainly, but not entirely, to the advancement and development of Ukrainian studies. Originally founded in 1873 in the city of Lviv in the-then Austro-Hungarian Empire, the headquarters of the Society were reestablished in the United States in 1947. The Society maintains a specialized library, a depository of archives, and an art collection. It provides research grants for scholars, and sponsors the publication of books on Ukrainian studies.

Archival holdings at the Shevchenko Scientific Society shed light on the life and work of Ukrainians in different European and American places since the 1840’s. The catalog of archival collections at the depository is available on the Society’s website.
