„Education is the best investment one can make.“ Michaela Bakala

Each year the Foundation awards scholarships to talented students in the Czech Republic and Switzerland, opening the door to studies at prestigious universities around the world. The record so far is rather impressive: More than 140 Foundation students and alumni are making their mark in the natural sciences and humanities, while many of them have assumed prominent posts in public and cultural institutions and top managerial positions at international corporations.

Zdenek Bakala serves as a member of the Board of Overseers at his alma mater, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, USA, where he endowed the Bakala Professor of Management faculty chair.
