Polish-American and Polish Organizations
December 28, 2022
December is upon us, allowing us to reflect on the passing scholarship and grants awarding year. For decades, the Kosciuszko Foundation has helped Polish Americans to pursue their education comfortably. When students could not afford college or graduate school, we assisted them financially. When artists needed a place to engage in Polish culture, the KF was there. When Polonia needed someone to speak on important issues, the KF stepped up to the challenge. Now we need you.
Thanks to your incredible support, we were able to help many in their educational paths in 2022.
We are delighted to share that this year we awarded the following:
- nearly $450K in scholarships and grants for Polish Americans to complete their graduate, undergraduate, and Ph.D. degrees
- over $ 700K for exchange students to the U.S. and Poland
- $100K for The Teaching English in Poland Program - 430 children, with 125 of them from Ukraine and 65 Americans joined the program in 6 camps last summer
- $80K for Polish studies programs in the U.S.
- $50K in awards for talented young scientists (The Witold Lipski Award, Prof. Frank Wilczek Award, Prof. Stefan Pienkowski Award)
- $20K for summer courses in the Polish language at Jagellonian University in Cracow
This year we also awarded students from Ukraine in the amount of:
- $75K for training courses for teachers of Polish as a foreign language with a component of MHPSS (nearly 1000 teachers have completed the courses run by the SOK Foundation)
- over $50K for Ukrainian students in Poland to cover their educational needs
- 40 Ukrainian scholars with grants of $2,500 each
- 25 Ukrainian artists with $1,250 each
- $25K for Flying University - free on-line university courses in the Humanities and Social Sciences offered to Ukrainian students
2022 was an incredible year for us, and you can see those results in the great number of exceptional and deserving students, scholars, and artists we have helped throughout the year. We appeal to you today for donations to the Kosciuszko Foundation Scholarship Fund. Please help us to make the final days of 2022 even more prosperous.
We count on your support greatly! Make sure to please future generations of talented Polish students, scholars, and artists. Your participation in the KF Fundraising is a vote of confidence in our mission.
