For students


Almost every student has talent, a desire for self-discovery, a curiosity for the world and a dream to achieve great things. Our programs help students aged 10 to 19 discover these desires and work on them.

Do you want to work on your potential and improve the things around you? Do you have a keen sense of curiosity, courage and a firm attitude? If yes, then you are just who we’re looking for.

There are many ways we can help you grow – both online and in person, either in summer or year-round. We can support you financially, by giving you advice or by putting you in touch with an interesting person that can help you take the next step.

We dream of a better Slovakia. Join us so that we can work on this goal together.

Here are our student programs:

  • LEAF Award is an award ceremony for smart and talented children aged 10 to 16, which is organized under the auspices of the president of the Slovak Republic. Have you already achieved something or are you still planning on doing something for your surroundings? Maybe starting your own business or a social entrepreneurship organization? We will support you for 12 months and help you improve your project and grow as a person, providing both professional and financial help.

  • Do you have unanswered questions about yourself, your future or your project? During this 9-month mentoring program, you will meet, exchange e-mails and work with an adult who has taken a path similar to yours. Together, you will look for answers, choose a university and start a project or business. Students with the best plans will be rewarded by being sent on a study trip to an international summer school such as Yale.

  • Have you been accepted to a summer camp or school? Or maybe you have an interesting project or mini-business but you don’t have the resources, know-how or people to work on it with? Let us know what your opportunity is and tell us what you need. We may choose to invest in your story. The Stories Investment Centre doesn’t have a specific format – we work with every student on an individual basis. In some cases we offer advice or contacts, in others we provide financial support.

    There is no deadline – all you need to do is show us that your idea deserves attention.
