Nikola Tesla Scholarship

Nikola Tesla Scholarship is the OHF programme which is supported by the ČEZ Foundation. The aim of the programme is to provide scholarships to talented students from socially disadvantaged families or children's homes or to students with diabilities who study technical fields at universities in the Czech Republic.

Lack of workers in technical fields is the current topic today. Studying of technical subjects is challenging, but the advantage is that there is a great demand for the graduates on the labour market. Our goal is to motivate technically oriented students and help them to overcome obstacles in achieving education which can be well applied in life.
