The Foundation

The George E. Jonas Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1996 and based in Denmark, dedicated to developing in promising young people from diverse backgrounds a lifelong commitment to sensitive and responsible leadership for the betterment of their communities and the world.

GEJF offers full scholarships to young people (at the moment, girls) of promise who have demonstrated a commitment to humanitarian leadership. Recipients are selected from countries all over the world and from diverse backgrounds. The annual selection is conducted by a team of volunteer selectors, the vast majority of whom are Alumni of CRS.

GEJF is run by a board of Danish and international members.
