Czech Ministry of Education Development Scholarships in Czech Republic


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 2018/2019. A total of six scholarships are available, ear-marked for students from developing countries and/or countries going through a process of political and economic transition.


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.


Applications must be made on the form that accompanies this announcement, and must include the following documents:

  • completed application form

  • motivation essay of no more than 1000 words, explaining why they need a scholarship, and what they hope to gain from their studies at Charles University

  • two letters of recommendation from teachers, who know the student from their previous studies, including confirmation of the student's financial need (NOTE: The current scholarship holders who are reapplying do not need to submit the two recommendation letters or write the essay. Please include a cover note and one recommendation letter from a Charles University academic who knows you from your studies with your application.)

  • Applications should be sent to the Manager of the International Office. All documents submitted must be originals and written in the English language, or accompanied by certified translations. (IMPORTANT: All scholarship applicants MUST also lodge an online application for their selected study program and note the name of the program on their application for a scholarship. Without this their application for a scholarship will not be considered.)

  • The deadline for scholarship applications is 30th April 2018. Students who will have problems meeting this deadline due to inefficient or unreliable postal services may, as a temporary measure, submit fax copies and/or scanned copies by e-mail. However, originals must also be sent, and final decisions will not be made until originals have been received.
