Support us

At Discover, we believe that every student regardless their financial situation should be given the chance to become a part of community, which shares love for education.  We are trying to keep the expenses as low as possible. As organizers, we are preparing Discover with any clam for a reward. Despite that, the price is still higher than most other summer camps. We are already granting 10% of our students. Increasing the fees would be a barrier for a great number of students.

Where does the money go?

INCOME

A student fees
B donations

expenses

I accomodation and meals
II scholarships
III preparatory meetings
IV teaching aids

Your donation of 140 eur will allow us to grant a scholarship to one underprivileged student.

Your donation of 240 eur will cover all costs of one student’s participation in Discover.

All student fees are lower than actual cost per student. The difference is covered by donations.

DISCOVER IN THE MEDIA

“It is not too often for a person to experience in these difficult times a moment of crystal clear optimism, a flare of uncomplicated hope. The author of these lines spent such a moment of renewed faith in the future previous Saturday in the Benedictine monastery in Svatý Jan pod Skalou near Prague.

(…) Discover organisers convey to Czech and Slovak teenagers some of the skills they have acquired in top universities – skills that are still not given enough attention to in the domestic education system. For example, the ability to formulate an idea and debate in a cultured way, the habit of connecting fields and looking for unexpected associations, the principle of not paying attention only to educational outcomes, but also to the overall quality of life. And in a broader sense, the message that with quality education is firmly connected the idea of active citizenship and responsibility for the state of the world. “

„If someone asked me in the spring what I wanted to be, I would answer, an actress. After this week, I would answer, a good person.“
