Impact Statement

For the past 25 years CSF has been providing financial assistance to the financially deserving  Croatian university students in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Without this assistance many of these bright young men and women would not be able to obtain university education. This is all made possible because of individuals and families who have generously  supported our mission by donating or sponsoring one or more students.

Welcome to the Croatian Scholarship Fund

The Croatian Scholarship Fund (CSF) is a non-political, charitable, non-profit (503C) organization which was established in 1989 in Northern California.

The primary purpose of this unique organization is to develop leaders for Croatia’s future by providing financial assistance to highly qualified students of Croatian origin, living in Croatia or Bosnia-Hercegovina, so that they may attend a university in Croatia or in Bosnia & Hrezegovina.
