There are two systems for selecting scholarship holders:
Only applicants from the selected universities can apply for these places. Each year the selected universities with allocated scholarship places are changed. The Foreign Departments of the selected universities are informed of the allocation of scholarship places.
Applications for scholarships allocated under the quota system are submitted to the Rector’s Office of the Foreign Department. The Foreign Department will invite applicants to submit the Scholarship Application. The Rector’s Office will decide on the selection and nomination of applicants.
The Foreign Department itself will set the deadline for submission of applications. It is obviously bound by the deadline set out in the scholarship, by which it will deliver applications from the nominated applicants to the MEYS (Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Department of Foreign Relations, Karmelitská 529/5, 118 12 Prague 1).
Travel expenses of students and academic staff of state universities who are posted abroad for study and research stays on the basis of international agreements are refunded by the university. The refund of documented travel expenses takes place twice a year and only international travel is refunded, i.e. a single return journey from the Czech Republic to the place of residence (or to the capital city of the host country), if international travel is so defined in the respective international agreement.
In exceptional cases, when the student or academic member of staff travels, or purchases a plane/train ticket during a period when it is not possible to submit the plane/train ticket for refund by the deadline on 8 November of the given year, the university can inform the MEYS that it has received an additional request for a refund from a student or academic member of staff by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Based on this fact, the university will be invited to change or supplement the original request before a decision is issued.
Whether the university refunds the plane/train ticket itself, or reimburses the expenses when it has received a refund, depends on the university’s internal procedures.
The Department of International Relations at the MEYS will confirm the legitimacy of individual requirements.
The contact person at the Department of International Relations is Mgr. Jitka Plecitá (tel.: 234 812 106, e-mail: email@example.com).
Plane/train tickets purchased in the 2021 calendar year cannot be refunded under any circumstances in the following year, i.e. 2022.
