Education and youth

Centrom_HW_orezana

Open Society Fund Prague considers good education to be a fundamental factor in building an active, tolerant, and democratic civil society. For many years, the foundation has provided scholarships to secondary school and university students in order to enable them to attend prestigious foreign schools and acquire international experience. OSF also supports projects by young people and their engagement in public life. The foundation also supports young people from socially disadvantaged families, for instance by organizing internships for Roma students.

OSF has also been a long-term supporter of inclusive education, which involves the integration of disadvantaged children (children from other ethnic groups, from socially disadvantaged families, or handicapped children). OSF provides grants to non-governmental organizations that promote the principles of inclusive education within the Czech educational system and that engage in debate on inclusive education with government, non-profit organizations, and other professionals.
