Former NIDA Humphrey Fellow Selected for Alumni Impact Award

Valeriy Ryabukha, Ukraine, a 2009 NIDA Hubert H. Humphrey Drug Abuse Research Fellow at Virginia Commonwealth University, was recently selected as a recipient of a Hubert Humphrey Alumni Impact Award. In an extremely competitive selection process, Mr. Ryabukha received the award for his proposed project “Evidence-based prevention for children of Ukraine.” The Alumni Impact Awards allow Humphrey Fellowship Alumni to use the knowledge and skills they acquired during their fellowship year in their home countries. Mr. Ryabukha’s funding for this award was made possible by NIDA International Program support for the Humphrey Fellowship Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education.
