Why Support CEU
A CEU education is rooted in the tenets of free and open societies: democratic institutions, respect for human rights, and the pursuit of truth. Attracting students from over 100 countries each year, CEU is a premier institution that not only offers top-notch degree programs – it is an intellectual community that transcends the barriers of class, gender, religion, ideology, and national identity.
Nearly every CEU education is funded by supporters like you. Your gift, regardless of size, ensures that CEU can continue to provide a world-class graduate education to promising scholars and future leaders from around the world, and to advance the principles of free and open societies.
"Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up at the steps, we must step up the stairs.”
– Vaclav Havel, Co-founder of CEU and first President of the Czech Republic
