PZU Foundation Scholarships for Polish Citizens
In 2016 PZU Foundation and EAD inaugurated the PZU Scholarships project.
With the support of the PZU Foundation, we will grant scholarships to outstanding candidates for the Program of the Academy of Young Diplomats (AYD).
Within this project, a group of local Polish leaders will receive financial support for their participation in the AYD. Each edition brings together young leaders from over 60 countries who will be educated within three unique specializations in English (International Organizations, International Security, and Foreign Service).
The scholarship shall cover the tuition fee for participation in AYD. Please be advised that the scholarship does not cover the costs of accommodation, transportation, and meals during the program.
