Interviews for the scholarship program of the Fondation Zdenek et Michaela Bakala took place in Geneva on Monday 7 May, 2018. Fifteen talented students pre-selected by Swiss universities presented their projects and study plans to the jury. Michaela Bakala, Fondation’s Chair of the Board, especially appreciated their enthusiasm and dedication.

Students who have been granted a scholarship will have a chance to further develop their potential by pursuing studies at top-ranked universities abroad. Michaela Bakala believes that this opportunity not only helps students to achieve their goals, it also brings fresh ideas and different points of view to their new host country.

The interviews were followed by a cocktail reception, where students met Zdenek and Michaela Bakala and other guests. It was a unique event, as representatives of all the philanthropic organizations supported by the Bakalas in the Czech Republic and Switzerland were able to meet in one place and present their activities in short videos.
