Information on the Kerze Scholarship Fund
The Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Ottawa informs that information is available about opportunities offered by the Kerže Scholarship Funds on several webpages.
These scholarships are part of the heritage of American Slovenians, this heritage is expressed in three educational funds for the training of students from Slovenian origin and allow for advanced education and scholarships for Slovenian students at prestigious universities in the USA.
Kerže Grants Funds are the largest private scholarship funds for the financing of Slovenian students in the US, and for the last few years they have significantly and successfully contributed to the realization of the academic ambitions of Slovenian music and technology students at US universities. There are two music scholarship funds (Therese Kerze Cheyovich Endowment Fund and Frank Kerze Jr. and the Florence Kerze Dunphy Scholarship Fund), which are intended for students of classical music at Thornton University of Southern California and one science training scholarship fund (Frank and Therese Kerze Research Assistantship for the Study of Transport Phenomena in Complex Systems) at the University of California, Los Angeles.
More information about a promotional event on the Kerže Scholarship Fund is available in the press release on the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website: (http://www.mzz.gov.si/si/medijsko_sredisce/novica/40350/).
