|About the Foundation||Grants||How to Donate||News Releases|
The Canadian Polish Millennium Fund was created to commemorate the millennial anniversary of Christianity in Poland observed in 1966. Initiated at a General Convention of representatives of the Polish community in Canada in 1960, the Fund was created by Letters Patent issued in 1964.
The goal of the Fund is to promote the Polish culture in Canada and to preserve the Polish language. The objectives of the fund include aiding and encouraging education among people of Polish origin and descent, establishing scholarships and fellowships for students, financing the publication of scientific and literary works relating to Polish history and culture, supporting Polish schools, libraries, academic institutions, Polish Scouts and other Polish community youth organizations in Canada.
Each calendar year the Canadian Polish Millennium Fund awards grants to individuals and organizations such as educational institutions, cultural institutions, social and youth organizations and authors of published books which deal with Polish and/or Polonia matters. Criteria information, application deadlines and applications can be found on our website. Incomplete applications or applications received after the deadline will not be accepted. Please read over all application criteria carefully. Podania o Stypendia.
