|| The Kobzar Fellowship is a way of paying tribute to the generosity and foresight of those who make this simple gesture now, knowing that it will mean many lifetimes of support for the efforts of their children, their grandchildren, and all others who recognize the value of developing and supporting Ukrainian culture.
Each inducted member is recognized by a special lapel pin, which is worn by members of the Kobzar Fellowship. Each inducted member’s name is included annually in the list of members of the Kobzar Fellowship in the Shevchenko Foundation Annual Report.
