About the program

Study Tours to Poland (STP) is a Polish-American Freedom Foundation program, implemented by the Leaders of Change Foundation in cooperation with the Borussia Foundation. As part of the Program, study visits to Poland are organized for people from Eastern Europe, South Caucasus, and Central Asia. The aim of the Program is to show the realities of Poland and the European Union, while at the same time developing and strengthening professional and personal contacts between leaders from Eastern Europe and their Polish partners. The Program’s offer is addressed to students and professionals from a range of fields and specialties.

As part of STP, the Leaders of Change Foundation implements the Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy (WEASA) in partnership with the Polish-American Freedom Foundation, the College of Europe Natolin Campus, and the German Marshall Fund.
