In 2019 we saw our scholarship program grow immensely with 11 scholarships awarded to talented young primary school and secondary school musicians, 11 to young athletes in secondary school, and 1 secondary school laboratory donation. The Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb served as the perfect backdrop for our scholarship ceremony. One of our recipients, Tia Pikija, delighted guests by performing a rendition of Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro”. We look forward to following our newest scholars along their journey toward reaching their sky! Scholarships can be used for furthering one’s skills through seminars, contests, purchase of musical aids or sports equipment or any other cost related to students’ musical or sport development.
