Scholarships and Programs

The Czech Heritage Foundation supports a number of heritage-based scholarships and programs each year.

Educational Kits
Educational kits help educate the public, especially children, about Czech and Slovak heritage. Unfortunately, these kits were damaged in the 2008 flood and have not been restored. The Czech Heritage Foundation is looking for someone to rejuvenate this program.

Homestay Program
The Czech Heritage Foundation Homestay Program funds student “Ambassadors” to live with a host family for three weeks in or near Prague, and host a Czech student from that family later in the same summer.

Scholarship Fund
The Czech Heritage Foundation Scholarship Fund aids undergraduate and graduate students who have completed at least one year of post-secondary education. The scholarship is available to Iowan students of Czech or Slovak descent.
