We are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in education by creating opportunities for young, talented and ambitious Czechs and Slovaks.
Our Young Talents Program gives gymnasia students the opportunity to study with the best in the world, opportunity unprecedented anywhere in Central Europe. Our students love the challenge. They excel. It's an effective way to prepare for university studies.
With the Center for Talented Minds (CTM), our extended arm in Prague, we do all we can to motivate and support talented young minds to academic excellence.
We are grateful for the support we have been receiving from the Center for Talented Youth (CTY), Johns Hopkins University, a world authority on talent development from pre-school to high school graduation.
Our 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. We need sponsors to do more.
