Key characteristics and advantages of the project:

Help in education by increasing the number of scholarships for especially gifted and socially disadvantaged students in the first and second cycle of studies.
Support for sustainable return of Bosniaks to the Republic Srpska through assistance in education, science and culture.

By breeding of endowed funds through additional cash endowment, donations or sponsorships are acquired the necessary conditions for the sustainability of Fund ''Bošnjaci''.
The greatest wealth and resources of Bosnia and Herzegovina are well-educated and professional young staff that can improve development of the economy through new investment and employment.
Investment in education and science of exceptionally talented and impecunious students is a long process but certainly the most profitable investment in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We expect that our scholars, after completion of studies and employment, will work to improve the social status of citizens through new investments, economic development and youth employment, to promote and financially support Fund ''Bošnjaci'', allowing its long-time existence and continuous scholarships for generation to come.
