“For this school year, the foundation’s Board of Trustees has approved scholarships for as many as 50 students, 20 more than in the preceding year. Out of the large number of applications we have very carefully selected students who have proved their excellent academic results to date, and also ambitions to succeed in the field of study of their choice. The students’ active help to their community is also important,” Hana Halfarová, Project Director of the Universities and Open Gate projects at The Kellner Family Foundation, explains the selection process. For this school year, the foundation has earmarked some CZK 10 million for scholarships under the Universities project.
The foundation’s Board of Trustees decides on grants on the basis of suggestions and recommendations by Hana Halfarová, the Universities Project Director. The founders of the foundation, Mr. Petr Kellner and his wife Renáta, and Mr. Jan Leiner are the Trustees.
Criteria applied by the foundation’s Board of Trustees:
Academic results so far; ranking in various competitions; confirmation of language skills
Prestige of the college/university at which the applicant intends to study
Recommendations from teachers
Essay on plans for the future
The student’s community work
Financial situation of the student’s family
The foundation supports students in Bachelor’s courses. As an exception, two Master’s students at Vysoká škola finanční a správní [The University of Finance and Administration] in Prague have been included. These students grew up at a children’s home and now have followed up on their Bachelor’s course at the same school, during which they received support from one of the municipal districts of Prague.
