GBE Foundation is a non-profit organization which provides scholarships to young, talented, underprivileged students from Central Europe to help fulfill their dreams of studying in the United States.
Since 2007, we have found, selected, sponsored and mentored high school students from Slovakia. Students who have come to study at high schools in the United States – and have excelled.
In addition to providing scholarships to our students, we also give them the confidence to succeed at American schools. We strongly believe that attending a high school abroad is a great, cost effective tool to kickstart young talent by:
Improving foreign language
Experiencing global educational systems and cultures – a true eye opener
Gaining exposure to top university recruiters/coaches – a chance to change lives
We are very efficient with our funds. Over 90% of funds raised go directly to students. We believe in spending money on the main cause – our talented individuals. Each student’s study abroad costs roughly $9,000 per year:
$7,500 in student agency and government fees
$1,200 in airline tickets
$300 visa and admin fees
Note: remaining key costs (room & board) are covered by a U.S. host family selected by a partnership student agency and local school with the assistance of GBE Foundation
GBE Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Federal Tax ID: 47-4381167, incorporated in the state of California.
