Czech Republic Government Scholarship

The Government of the Czech Republic annually offers scholarships within its Foreign Development Cooperation. These so-called government scholarships support students from developing countries who would like to study at public universities in the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic provides scholarships for studies pursued both in the Czech language (in follow-up Master’s and Doctoral study programmes) and in the English language (in follow-up Master’s and Doctoral study programmes). Scholarships for studies in the Czech language are granted taking into account the list of recommended fields of study, updated according to the needs of specific countries, and also with regard to ongoing development cooperation projects. Applicants can also receive funding for a one-year-long language and preparatory course. Scholarships for study programmes in the English language are granted only in the selected study programmes.
