Academic Information Agency

The Academic Information Agency provides information on offers of scholarships abroad based on international agreements and on other options for foreign study.

Basic information

The Academic Information Agency (AIA) is part of the Centre for International Cooperation in Education, a semi-budgetary organisation that was established by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic in order to perform tasks relating to educational, school and other contacts with foreign countries.

  • It collects, processes and disseminates information on the possibilities of education of Czech citizens (especially university students, postgraduate students and teachers) abroad.
  • It is responsible for implementing selection procedures (outside the list of quota) for scholarship stays abroad under international agreements. During the academic year, it carries out administrative and organisational work relating to the selection of candidates for open scholarship stays, based on instructions from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. AIA professionals provide consulting services for specific scholarships on offer.
