Starak Family Foundation

Spectra Edu implements the statutory goals of the Starak Family Foundation regarding the education and growth of young talented people. Thanks to the "Wena" Grant Program, it supports students and teachers from public secondary schools of fine arts in the implementation of their original educational and artistic projects. The program creates a space for their passions and ideas and enables its participants to look at art within a new, exciting framework. The Horizons Scholarship Program, implemented together with the Roman Czarnecki Educational Foundation, supports young people from families with financial difficulties, giving them an opportunity to learn and grow in the most interesting high schools and technical schools in Poland.

Jerzy Starak: “In Poland, just as anywhere else in the world, there are wonderful, talented young people. However, many of them have limited access to modern technologies and scientific tools. They come from areas where educational institutions and language centers are scarce. This often results in a sense of discouragement. Young adults are forced to “try their luck” abroad. Therefore, we believe we need to support them here, starting today. We must create conditions that enable young people to grow and that can compete with those available to their peers in other countries. Only then we will be able to convince students and workers to stay, so that the next generation can draw on their ingenuity and success. This is a crucial part of our work at the Foundation.”


Following the Founder’s vision, the Spectra Edu project implements the goals of the Starak Family Foundation relating to the education and growth of young gifted people. Since its establishment in 2008, the Foundation has granted numerous individual, academic and sports scholarships. It has helped students by supporting them financially at the beginning of their education at prestigious universities both in Poland and abroad. It has financed sports equipment, outstanding coaches and gifted sportsmen along their professional career.


  • Through the “Wena” Grant Programme, the Foundation supports students and teachers from secondary schools of fine arts in the implementation of their original educational and artistic projects. The program began in 2019.
  • The “Horizons” Scholarship Programme, implemented in cooperation with the Roman Czarnecki Educational Foundation, supports young people with financial difficulties by granting them academic scholarships. The Starak Family Foundation partnered with the EFC Foundation in 2016.

Let's look at fragility as a symbol of strength and beauty.

We wish You to always be able to look at the same things from a new perspective.


Hope that this Easter will fill us with faith in people, strength and optimism.

There is a reason that this special holiday is full of encouragement and rebirth.

The "Imagine yourself" is a competition for the best film ideas, organised by the Watchout Studio production house. The idea behind this event is to bring the submitted stories to life and give them a chance to be presented to a global audience. The initiative, apart from selecting and rewarding the best authors, is to connect authors and representatives of the film industry.



Christmas is a special time when we show more warmth and empathy to others.


We look at the other person with more attention. We give support, respect and understanding. We smile at each other more and extend a helping hand.


Maja Zielaskowska (4th grade), Aniela Walczak (4th grade), and Antonina Kubicka (2nd grade), who study at the Visual Arts High School in Grudziądz, by developing a common educational-artistic project, speak about tolerance, respect, closeness, and mutual relations.




They use images and words. In their actions they convey very important messages about diversity, expressing oneself and one's own emotions.


Maja, Aniela and Antonina presented the finale of the project in Równik - the Teofil Kosiński Rainbow Centre of Support and Integration in Toruń.


They demonstrated a community of action that resulted in goodness! In fact, we can create goodness every day, not only on holidays.  


The "Interview with Drag Queens" project is one of the mini-projects that make up one big project titled "Leaders of Art", which was awarded a grant in the second edition of the "Wena" Grant Program competition with the main theme of "Closeness and interpersonal relations".  


We would like to congratulate and thank Dr. Iwona Liegmann, the teacher in charge of the grant project, and the very creative team of three: Maja, Aniela and Tosia.
