The Club of Foundation for Polish Science Scholars was founded in 2000 during a meeting in Jeziory near Poznan. The meeting was organized by the Foundation for Polish Science and was attended by laureates of the Foundation post-doctoral scholarship programme KOLUMB.  Initially, the Club was established as a group of young scientists, whose post-doctoral training was financed by the Foundation. In subsequent years, the Club has been joined by laureates of  several other Foundation programmes, such as Homing, Focus, Team Welcome, Ideas, Master and Bridge.
