Horizons Scholarship Program
Our Horizons Scholarship Program (previously Education Dreams) has been supporting young adults since 2009. It creates an open space in which they can learn, grow and create. The program encourages scholars to be active, socially engaged, empathetic Poles and Europeans.
The program supports outstanding teachers and compliments their professional development by offering financial aid of up to 3500 PLN. The grant facilitates carrying out creative educational projects with students in the spring semester of the 2018/2019 academic year.
EFC Patron School
Our mission is bridging the gap in educational opportunities. We wish to support students and teachers by acting locally. We are confident that good schools can be created everywhere. All you need are people, who believe in the project and who want to share their passions and values with their closest environment.

The EFC Foundation Patron
Prof. Roman Czernecki (1904-1986)
A dedicated and passionate educator. He organized clandestine education in Słupia Jędrzejowska before the war. After the war, he founded the Szczekociny school. He later worked as head of the educational department in the Zielonogórskie province, rector of the Public College of Education in Gdańsk and lecturer at the Warsaw University of Technology. From the very beginning, his main goal was to support the educational development of young people, regardless of their material situation or where they come from. His work inspired the establishment of the EFC Foundation.
