Czech Republic government scholarships
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Czech Republic (hereafter referred to as the “Ministry”) annually offers fully-funded scholarships to developing countries, pursuant to bilateral intergovernmental or departmental agreements concluded with a number of countries.
Its length usually ranges from 2 to 10 months depending upon the agreement made by the Czech government and the foreign government concerned that specifies also the categories of eligible recipients.
Czech Republic Government Scholarships holders may be admitted for research visits (i.e. either attending non-degree courses of their choice, or pursuing an independent research activity, depending on their qualifications and preferences), or for study visits, when they enroll in a standard study programme for the period of scholarship specified in the appropriate intergovernmental/departmental agreement.
Since the courses they follow in the Czech Republic do not lead to the award of a degree, the universities concerned usually do not require them to sit entrance examinations.
Why Czech Republic Government Scholarships?
The Scholarships are intended solely to promote the study of adults of foreign nationality from the eligible third countries listed below. Neither a national of the Czech Republic, nor a national of a Member State of the European Union, nor any other foreign national who has a permanent residence permit on the territory of the Czech Republic can, therefore, receive such a scholarship. In addition, scholarships cannot be awarded to children under 18 years. (Applicants must be 18 years old on September 1 of the year when they begin their studies in the Czech Republic.)
Field of study and level is one of the things that differentiates scholarship opportunities most scholarship opportunities are specifically meant for a particular field of study.
Czech Republic Government Scholarships of this type are designed for university/college students or graduates and Ph.D. candidates (exceptionally also for university researchers/teachers) who wish to accomplish a study or research stay at one of the Czech public institutions of higher education.
Its length usually ranges from 2 to 10 months depending upon the agreement made by the Czech government and the foreign government concerned that specifies also the categories of eligible recipients. All applicants should indicate the preferred period of scholarship in their application form.
The Ministry reserves the right to change the requested term of scholarship and/or place any applicant to a course and/or higher education institution different from those indicated in his/her scholarship application form, if admission, as requested by the applicant, is not feasible.
