The Leon Stukelj Foundation Scholarship for the Students of the University of Maribor in Slovenia

The “Rotary Klub Maribor” and a known Rotarian and a three-time Olympic champion Leon Štukelj founded the Leon Štukelj Scholarship Foundation (Fundacija Leona Štuklja) in February 1999. The establishment of the Foundation was held in the course of the events organized in honour of the 100th anniversary of the famous Yugoslav gymnast. Then the Union of the Slovenia’s Rotary Clubs “Distrikt 1912” joined the Foundation. Thus, the Leon Štukelj Foundation became a national-level institution.
