We are continually assessing how we can best best fulfill our goal of supporting talented young students on their higher education path. Since 2013, the Foundation has provided more than 100 scholarships for masters and doctoral studies in Switzerland. In 2021, 10 students gained scholarships to attend prestigious universities abroad.

In order to stay ahead of the turbulent times facing us all, the Fondation Zdenek et Michaela Bakala Board of Trustees is pursuing a refreshing of its educational support strategy. Consequently, the Board has decided to reset the Swiss Scholarship Program as of 2022.

Please be assured that this decision will in no way affect existing scholarships. Scholarships already awarded to students will be funded as per the commitments made to the students and the universities.

Moving forward we will be seeking new formats and approaches to further the cooperation with our existing partner universities. Stay in touch and follow our website for updates.
