Scholarship Description:

Development Scholarships for Developing Countries

Thanks to a generous contribution from the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, the Faculty of Social Sciences is able to offer a limited number of partial scholarships for students of all fee based programs in academic year 2015/16. A total of seven scholarships are available, ear-marked for students from developing countries and/or countries going through a process of political and economic transition.

Number of award(s): A total of seven scholarships are available, ear-marked for students from developing countries and/or countries going through a process of political and economic transition.

Duration of award(s): Scholarships are awarded for school year 2015/16, and may not be deferred to later years.

What does it cover? Under the terms of this scholarship, students will receive a waiver of school fees for their first semester of study, plus a one-off payment of 50 000 CZK (about 2050 EUR) as a contribution towards living costs. School fees for the second semester of study will not be waived.

Selection Criteria: All scholarship applications received by the deadline will be assessed by a Scholarship Review Board, which will recommend seven students to receive scholarships to the Dean of the Faculty. The decision of the Board on which students it will recommend for a scholarship will be independent of the deliberations of the Admissions Panel regarding which students to admit. However, only students finally admitted by the Faculty are eligible to become scholarship holders. In addition to the documents submitted by scholarship applicants, the Scholarship Review Board will take into consideration applicants’ results from their earlier studies. Priority will be given to students who have not previously had the opportunity to study abroad.
