Government of the Czech Republic Masters and Doctoral Scholarship for Foreign Students 2023-2024
Applications are now open for the Government of the Czech Republic Masters and Doctoral Scholarship for Foreign Students 2023-2024. The Government of the Czech Republic offers scholarships within the framework of its Foreign Development Assistance in support of the study of foreign nationals from developing countries listed below at public institutions of higher education in the Czech Republic.
The Czech Republic provides scholarships for studies pursued both in the Czech language (in follow-up Master’s and Doctoral study programmes) and in the English language (in follow-up Master’s and Doctoral study programmes). Scholarships for studies in the Czech language are granted taking into account the list of recommended fields of study, updated according to the needs of specific countries, and also with regard to ongoing development cooperation projects. Applicants can also receive funding for a one-year-long language and preparatory course. Scholarships for study programmes in the English language are granted only in the selected study programmes.
Value of Scholarship
The scholarship covers the necessary costs related to staying and studying in the Czech Republic.
- Currently the amount of scholarship paid to students on a follow-up Master’s study programme stands at CZK 14,000 per month, whereas the amount paid to students of a Doctoral study programme stands at CZK 15,000 per month.
- Costs of accommodation, food and public transport are covered by scholarship holders from the scholarship under the same conditions that apply to students who are citizens of the Czech Republic.
- Travel expenses for travelling to the Czech Republic and back to the student’s home country are paid by the party that nominated the student to study in the Czech Republic or by the foreign national at his/her own cost.
Eligible Countries and Study Programmes
Scholarships for the academic year 2023/2024 are offered only to the citizens of the following countries:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina,
- and Zambia.
The scholarships are dedicated solely to promoting the studies of foreign nationals from developing third countries. Neither a citizen of the Czech Republic, nor a citizen of the European Union, nor any other foreign national with a permanent residence permit in the territory of the Czech Republic may, therefore, apply for a scholarship.
The applications received after the deadline will not be considered!
Any technical questions can be addressed to the register administrator at the following email address [email protected].
The first part of the selection process is based on 30-minute knowledge test that will be followed by a 60-minute English language test. A cover letter (maximum 1000 characters) would be an integral part of the on-line application, where the applicants explain why they intend to study in
Czech Republic and how they are going to use the knowledge in the country of origin. The best scoring candidates will advance to the second round.
