The Scholarship Program at ISP provides transformational opportunities for deserving local students for whom an ISP education would otherwise be out of financial reach.
ISP greatly benefits from our fantastic scholarship students, who not only add to the socioeconomic diversity in our school but also bring vitality and excellence to our community. All our scholars continue their education and go to university on another scholarship and go on to lead healthy, fulfilling, and purposeful lives, contributing responsibly to our changing world!

Ukrainian Refugees in the Czech Republic
The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine has had a major impact on the world, and especially on our lives in Prague. With the Czech Republic taking more than 100,000 Ukrainian refugees into the country, our ISP community is learning how to aid and accommodate the people who need our help. A special auction will be part of this event, with all proceeds going directly to Dignity Restoring Hope charitable organization.
Thank you to everyone who bought tickets to the ISP Gala.
Physical tickets are not issued. Once you have purchased your ticket, your names will be added to the guest list. For security reasons, all guests must present photo identification for entry to Petschek Villa.
2022 ISP Gala attendees should be aware that the total price of entry is split into “ticket” and “donation” categories for accounting reasons. This means that of the price of attending the event, 2,650 CZK is classified as a “ticket” or the cost of organising the event, and the remaining is classified as a “donation” towards the ISP Scholarship Fund. The event is organised under the Public Collection Number: S-MHMP/515652/2018, registered with the Prague City Hall (Magistrát hl. m. Prahy).
The 2022 ISP Auction is now LIVE, and everyone in the ISP community is invited to participate. The auction is open from 25 April, 17:00 – 7 May, 17:00. We are grateful to the Gallery KODL for kindly hosting the auction on the Artslimit platform. There will be no fees or commissions charged.
The auction is great fun, with many one-of-a-kind experiences and unique items available.
We are thankful for the beautiful array of auction items supplied by our ever-generous community of donors. Whether you love travel, adventure, art, sports, learning, health, beauty, or wellness, you will find something special to suit you. You might also enjoy the extra special items offered by ISP community members, such as a private dinner with the Kimballs at their home, making your laser-cut jewelry after hours in the Idea Lab, or choosing an original piece from the fantastic artworks offered by ISP students.
