On May 10th, US Ambassador to Slovakia Adam Sterling met with Slovak-Americans in Pittsburgh at a reception organized by FOS Chairman Joe Senko and his wife Albina. Ambassador Sterling gave an informative presentation on Slovakia and personally greeted the guests and took individual photos with them. The next evening, the FOS Board of Directors hosted a dinner for Ambassador Sterling in Washington, DC. The Ambassador briefed the FOS Board on his work in Slovakia and discussed cooperation on FOS projects including our FOS Slovak Scholars program. Thanks to contributions from our supporters, this FOS initiative has awarded grants to 44 outstanding Slovak students for a two-month study and internship program in Washington, DC. Our five 2017 grantees will arrive in June.
