Jerzy Peterkiewicz Educational Foundation
Jerzy Peterkiewicz Educational Foundation

Peter KiewiczIt was Jerzy Peterkiewicz's dearest wish to leave a legacy for the benefit of those who, like himself in his own early years, cannot afford to write or study as they wish.

The Foundation was therefore set up in his name in accordance with the conditions set down in his Will to 'provide bursaries to further a knowledge, appreciation and understanding of Polish literature and other writing of artistic, historic, aesthetic and cultural value amongst young students and writers of Polish descent'.

A Board of Trustees holds the money in trust with which to award annual bursaries for these aims, and to fund new translations and editions of Jerzy Peterkiewicz’s own work.
