The Jan Karski Educational Foundation and Fundacja Edukacyjna Jana Karskiego in Warsaw, Poland, are funding a scholarship to participate in the 2022 Georgetown Leadership Seminar organized by the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. The scholarship is for Polish young government employees on the national and local levels, civil servants, leaders of NGOs, scholars, experts, managers, scholars, and journalists, whose professional/volunteering work in the following areas is in accord with Karski’s legacy: foreign and international affairs, political science, national and global security, strategic studies, and conflict resolution. The award includes all meals, lodging, and round-trip transportation to Washington, DC, USA.

Since 2013, the Foundations have sponsored two Polish participants annually (except for the two-year pandemic break, when GLS was not held). In addition, this year, we are planning to sponsor two Ukrainian refugees who reside temporarily in Poland.

The application process is closed, but if you have any questions, you can contact Fundacja Edukacyjna Jana Karskiego (administering the application process) at kontakt@jankarski.net.

Founded in 1982, the Georgetown Leadership Seminar is the premier executive education program at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service, where Jan Karski served as a distinguished professor for 40 years. It brings rising leaders from around the world to the campus for a week of intensive discussion on major international issues. The GLS vision is to promote dialogue on global affairs and interdisciplinary cooperation among individuals who will help shape the future of their organizations and countries. Participants will have an opportunity to study major issues that influence U.S. foreign policy by meeting with top-level American policymakers and establishing contacts imperative for strengthening international understanding and cooperation.
