Supporting Young Talent

The Prof. Roman Czernecki Education Foundation (EFC) has awarded grants to another group of 80 talented young people from rural areas under its Dream of Education scholarship program. If it had not been for the foundation, the young people would not have had an opportunity to attend the best high schools and their talent could have been wasted.

The foundation has operated for only four years but has already achieved much. Among the nearly 250 people in total who have received EFC grants are numerous winners of national contests for high school students. The foundation supports not only their education, but also helps them develop their talents and pursue their passions.

The number of applications shortlisted for grants was almost four times higher this year than the grants available, showing how much the EFC program is needed. Young people seeking a grant apply through the EFC website. Then coordinators visit them in their homes to talk to them and their parents. Strict standards are applied in selecting grant recipients. Two criteria are taken into consideration: academic results and average income per family member, which can be no more than zl.850 a month.

The foundation was set up by Andrzej Czernecki, a Polish businessman. Its mission is to provide long-term support to young people in their education.
