InfoTrust is pleased to announce the establishment of the InfoTrust Foundation Scholarship Fund at the University of Cincinnati

The annual scholarship will be used to support international student(s) who are from Ukraine or Russia or who have been directly impacted by the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

As a graduate of the University of Cincinnati and native Ukrainian, InfoTrust CEO Alex Yastrebenetsky wanted to ensure he was helping his alma mater during this difficult time.

“This war is personal to me,” Yastrebenetsky said. “My parents just recently were able to get out of Ukraine themselves, so I want to do everything I can to help others, especially students, who may be in a similar situation with their own families. Both sides need our support. This educational scholarship will hopefully be a light during a dark time for students who need it most.”

Originally from Kharkiv, Ukraine, Yastrebenetsky came to the United States 28 years ago to attend the University of Cincinnati as an international student. His wife, Karina, and her family came as refugees from Moscow two years later. Michael Loban, Chief Growth Officer and co-founder of InfoTrust, also moved to Cincinnati from Ukraine 22 years ago. 

“We are fortunate and forever grateful that so many people supported us along our journey,” Yastrebenetsky said. “South African leader Nelson Mandela once said, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’ This world is beautiful, but there is certainly much in need of change. Our students are our future. We need the students impacted by this war to be able to continue their education; however, it takes incredible strength and courage to continue education in times of turmoil. Supporting students and providing them with the quality and values of a Western education will set them up for success in changing the world. We ask our community to join us in supporting this effort.”
