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 in the world.
With the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY), a renown authority on talent development, we have created a virtual school for young talents - ambitious and hardworking Czech and Slovak gymnasia students. With our scholarships they take academic enrichment and acceleration CTYOnline courses and CTY Summer Programs. Unprecedented anywhere in Central Europe, we have connected our students with their peers in the rest of the world. Our students are doing great in global competition.
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.
