The PZU SA scholarships are the result of the fruitful co-operation between the PZU SA and the European Academy of Diplomacy. Since 2011, EAD with the financial support of PZU SA has been hosting promising young leaders from the Eastern Partnership countries during each edition of the European Diplomacy Workshop (EDW). PZU SA has also participated in the organization of the inauguration ceremonies of the Academy of Young Diplomats program and the official dinners for the guests of honor.
Continuing the effective cooperation, PZU SA and EAD inaugurated the PZU Scholarships project. Within the scholarships funded by the PZU SA, authors of 6 best essays are enabled to participate in the EDW.
