Financing studies abroad

Studying abroad can be a major challenge for a student and his family. The costs of tuition and day-to-day expenses are much higher than the costs of extra-curricular activities at a polish high school. As a foundation we try to support students whilst eliminating barriers associated with financial aspects, through our scholarship competitions or educational scholarship programs. The necessary budget for tuition fees and living costs, often becomes a barrier preventing a student from studying at his dream college.
