What Do We Do?
The Scottish Czech & Slovak Fund (formerly the Scottish Czech and Slovak Summer Scholarship Fund) is an Edinburgh-based charity dedicated to the promotion of cultural and educational links between Scotland and the Czech and Slovak republics.
The Book Group is a sub-division of the Fund, formed in 2005 to oversee book donations to universities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia whose students apply for courses in Scotland and find difficulties in obtaining books on the reading list.
A meeting place here in Scotland’s capital for parents and their younger children (ages 0 to 3).
Foxes & Cubs

To date, the SCS Fund has sponsored nearly 50 students on specialist summer courses; provided teaching materials for institutions and individuals; and contributed to a study visit to Prague by a group of Scottish students.
Our library has many children’s books available to borrow in both Czech and Slovak languages.
Who Are We?
The Scottish Czech and Slovak Fund (SCSFund; previously SCSSFund) is an Edinburgh-based charity dedicated to the promotion of cultural and educational links between Scotland and the Czech and Slovak republics. The SCSFund is a Scottish Registered Charity (No. SC29812). Launched in 2000, we are a small trust aiming to support cultural and social activities that promote links between Scotland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Its' original purpose was to help visiting scholars who found themselves without funding as a result of a new British Council policy to withdraw support for summer school students. This objective has grown into a much wider undertaking, largely due to the popularity and success achieved by many fundraising occasions. We gratefully acknowledge the subsidy given annually by the Embassy of the Czech Republic; Czech Airlines; the British, Czech and Slovak Association; and other benefactors such as the Inveralmond Brewery, Alliance Wines and private individuals. We are also grateful to Edinburgh University for its' continuing support.
