exceptional personalities, such as Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, to Slovakia.

Our open grant programs are typical for:

We have open and publicly known dates for the announcement, closing and evaluation of grant programs.
We are open to anyone who meets the conditions of a specific grant program.

What decides is always and only quality:

  • project quality,
  • the quality of the applicant (e.g. merit in the case of students),
  • quality of evaluators (experts in the given field),
  • the same terms for everyone.

We inform those who passed and those who failed.
