We create opportunities for education and professional development of young, talented and ambitious Czechs and Slovaks. We want their talents to blossom and with them the standing of the Czech and Slovak Republics.
The Young Talents Program motivates Czech and Slovak youth to excellence. We work with the Center for Talented Youth, Johns Hopkins University, a leading authority on talent development. More than 800 students have used this program so far. Some received full scholarships to top universities.
The Young Leaders Program supports Czech and Slovak young professionals, future leaders in healthcare, education, and environmental science. Over the last few years, we have issued seventeen grants averaging about $15,000 per participant.
Please contribute to our education programs. We build on a proud tradition of the American Fund for Czechoslovak Refugees, established in 1948 by Czech and Slovak Americans to resettle refugees from communism in the United States. We are a legally registered charitable institution in the United States as defined by IRS 501(c) 3 regulations.
