The Balkan wars in the 90s devastated the economies in the region. Serbia was especially hard hit as a result of the many years of severe sanctions placed on it. Today a great majority of Serbs in the region do not currently have a university education, nor is one financially within their reach. The founders believed that this situation can be improved through a philanthropic effort and thus the Studenica Foundation was created.
The Studenica founder’s guiding principle in establishing the Foundation was that education is the most important factor for post-war recovery, for the intellectual, spiritual and economic advancement of a people, and for ensuring a more peaceful future in the region.
Our work has provided scholarships, grants to individuals and to educational, church, social and cultural institutions, as well as for humanitarian and other endeavors. We also provide grants for special one-time projects. We do not fund: capital campaigns or improvements, medical research, event sponsorships, political campaigns.
Help us enable Serbian students to build peace and prosperity in the region through education.
