Talent and passion will find a way. Provided that they have support and a goal.
We support talented, driven and hard-working Czech university students so that they can choose the institution they will find the most rewarding. We offer grants that allow them to study their selected field at universities anywhere in the world. We look forward to them naturally using their new knowledge for the benefit of the Czech Republic.
As I near the end of my undergraduate studies, I would like to dedicate a blog to what has shaped me perhaps the most during my time here - and I'm not referring to the invaluable professors or internships I've written about on this blog, but to life in the Newman House Chaplaincy.
Supported by grants, 61 students are bound for 50 universities in 12 countries across the globe
The grants are for Czech undergraduates who are serious about their journey of discovery. Not only are they willing to travel to faraway places to study, but most of all, they want to reach deeply into their field. They started already in secondary school, and now they want to continue at university.
We also appreciate it when students pursue fields that will make them in demand in the Czech Republic or are just beginning to develop here. These might be natural sciences, engineering and technology, art or humanities. So far, we have helped 239 students with funding for their university studies. You could be among them next year too.
Every year, we open the grant procedure to new candidates. Graduates of any secondary school can apply. We select those whose passion for their chosen field matches their ambition to study at university.
Our eyes are wide open. We draw on information and stimuli from everyday life. And we are inspired by our children – their outlook on life, their academic knowledge, and how they deal with their own challenges.
