The Government of the Czech Republic offers a number of scholarships within the framework of its Foreign Development Assistance Programme in support of the study of foreign nationals from developing countries at public institutions of higher education in the Czech Republic.
These so called Government Scholarships are designed to cover the standard length of study:
1) In Bachelor/Master study programmes plus one-year preparatory course of the Czech language (which is combined with other field-specific training).
Government scholarships of this category are awarded to graduates from upper secondary schools who can enrol only in study programmes in which they follow instruction in the Czech language.
Depending on the subject area, applicants are normally required to take entrance examinations at the respective institution of higher education.
The scholarship award is conditional upon a successful passing of entrance examinations;
2) In follow-up Master study programmes or Doctoral study programmes.
Government scholarships of this category are awarded to graduates from Bachelor or Master study programmes, respectively, who enroll in study programmes with instruction in the English language.
Scholarship applications together with the required attachments are to be submitted to the appropriate Czech Embassy in the applicant’s country before the deadline set by the Embassy so that the applicants’ dossiers reach the respective Czech authorities (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport).
Students who, at the time of application, stay in the Czech Republic may submit the respective documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Department for Development Co-operation, by 31 December of the preceding year at the latest.
A limited number of scholarships is offered to students from developing countries who file their applications with the respective National UNESCO Commissions.
I. Bachelor’s Study Programme (3-4 years)
II. Master’s Study Programme (4-6 years)
The donor country highly recommends the following field of studies: Natural Resources and Environment, Forestry Water and Landscape Management, Technology and Environmental Engineering, Economics and Finance. Preference will be given to students who will take these fields of study.
Note: There is no possibility to change neither the field of study nor the study programme once the fellowship is awarded.
Deadline is 15 January each year.
