Scholarship for young Christians in Croatia

Croatian scholarships for young Christians from poor nations are now being accepted by the Ministry of Science and Education, Republic of Croatia, for the academic year 2021/2022.

When it comes to the interdependence of basic human rights, peace, and security, the Croatian government pays particular emphasis. Most of the Croatian growth cooperation plans include such a strategy, and it is unquestionably included into the first sectoral aim of the National Strategy: human dignity.

It means that foreign development cooperation programs and projects are fully committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, while also promoting dignity, basic human rights, and welfare, as well as developing human capabilities and achieving full potential, regardless of gender, affiliation, status, belief, or place of residence, for all people everywhere. According to this sectoral precedence, the National Strategy states that all people have equal access to education without regard to their religion or nationality.

It’s clear that the promotion of basic human rights, such as the protection of freedom of thought, conscience or religion, and growth cooperation policies, which, in conjunction with this program, aim to create conditions for long-term sustainable development and growth of the community and the individual through academic programs, go hand-in-hand.

Minority religious groups, primarily Christians, are at risk worldwide. Since the Republic of Croatia is aware of this detrimental trend on a global scale, it has made it a priority to respect and protect the rights of religious communities, who are particularly vulnerable in developing nations. Scholarship recipients are required to return to their home countries after completing their studies. After returning to their homelands, they are expected to contribute to the progress of their communities, as well as to building capacities and increasing resilience at the local level, using the information they gained in Croatia.
