Croatian School Foundation (CSF)

The Croatian Scholarship Fund (CSF) has existed for more than 31 years. It was founded in Northern California and is the only Croatian organization in the United States providing scholarship assistance to Croatian students living and attending universities in Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. The motto of CSF is "Developing leaders through education". Over the last 30 years, CSF graduates have become leaders in their chosen profession and contribute to Croatian society. The CSF is run by a Volunteer Board, and scholarships are funded by generous sponsors, donations, and various fundraising activities.
