Annually the Victor Pinchuk Foundation gathers scholarship holders at Zavtra.UA Youth Forum where they engage in team building exercises, learn basics of business and social project development, meet top Ukrainian politicians, businessmen and civil society leaders.

Additionally, young scholars can participate, on a competition basis, in educational projects of the PinchukArtCentre. They can undertake practical training in NGOs and get access to their potential employers.
