Pro Polonia Foundation

With the Polish diaspora and Poles living abroad in mind.

The Pro Polonia Foundation supports scientific research, including in the field of Polish diaspora issues, implements exchanges between the country and the Polish diaspora and Poles living in various parts of the world, and develops the educational ambitions of the Polish community and Poles.

We support the integration of Polish communities abroad, as well as bilateral contacts: between Polish society, mainly young people, academic circles and the Polish diaspora and Poles living abroad – says about the Pro Polonia Foundation, the rector of the UKSW, Rev.
