Making quality education available
Everyone should have the opportunity to study in their native language, wherever in the world they happen to be. Access to high-quality education will catalyse the development of Belarus as a whole.
Connecting Belarus to the international academic community
Education in Belarus remains woefully insular. We provide a platform for the best Belarusian scholars, working abroad and in Belarus, to bring much-needed innovation to Belarusian education.
Promoting an open society based on the rule of law
We aim to strengthen Belarusian civil society through education. The knowledge we confer will make the Belarusian economy more competitive and make governance more efficient and modern.
Developing Belarusian culture and identity
Most of the materials presented at the Ostrogorski Academy are in the Belarusian language. This follows from our belief that the success of Belarus is largely contingent on the development of its own national identity.
Ostrogorski Academy is a nonprofit educational project dedicated to disseminating knowledge of the humanities. The academy is a Belarusian ‘online university’, based on a series of lectures on important and engaging topics. Each lecture series is read by well-known Belarusian academics and analysts based both abroad and in Belarus; courses also feature graphic illustrations, transcripts of lectures, e-books, podcasts, and links to additional sources of information.
