Scholarships and Funding

Faculty Scholarships and Funding

Our Faculty does not provide any grants or other funding options that are intended to cover tuition fees of foreign-language study programs.


The Faculty rewards the most successful students by giving the top 10% of the best students in the class a merit-based scholarship. This scholarship applies to all active students who achieve excellent academic results in the previous year. The scholarship is awarded to students with the best “average grade” which is calculated as an arithmetic average of all grades the student achieved in the previous academic year.


More information on merit-based scholarships, research scholarships, eligibility criteria and rules for awarding scholarships is available on our Faculty website.

Nonfaculty Scholarships and Funding

Other options of funding your studies can be found through national governments and other institutions. The Czech Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports (MEYS) offers scholarships to foreign students and researchers. These scholarships are based on exchange programs agreed between the Czech Republic and other countries. They last anywhere between 2 to 10 months and each of them is subject to specific eligibility criteria. You can find out more information about scholarships available for the academic year 2020/2021 on the MEYS website.


The MEYS also offers scholarships from the International Visegrad Fund. Established in 2000, its goal is to promote closer co-operation between the four Visegrad Group countries – Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland. The program offers various types of grants for different shareholders; the Visegrad Scholarship is intended for Master’s and Doctoral students. These scholarships are awarded not only to applicants from the Visegrad countries but also to applicants from Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, North Macedonia, Moldova, Monte Negro, Russian Federation, Serbia and the Ukraine, enabling them to study in one of the V4 countries; the same rules apply also to applicants from Kosovo. More information on the Visegrad fund is available on the MEYS website or the Visegrad Fund website.
