CEEPUS is a Central European university exchange programme which helps forge a shared European framework. It focuses mainly on regional co-operation within a university network in the following participating countries: Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, plus Pristina, Prizren and Peja (Kosovo) as a non-member participant.
This is a programme for undergraduate students who have completed the second semester of their university studies, for grad students and university teachers. One can join the programme either within a network of universities or individually as a "freemover".
In order to be eligible for a scholarship, the interested PhD, MA and BA students and university teachers have to sign in to the network before June 15 (fall term) or October 30 (spring term), respectively, of the given year.
The deadline for freemovers' applications is November 30.
AKTION Czech Republic – Austria is a programme aimed at boosting bilateral cooperation in education and research. The Czech and Austrian ministries of education set aside funds which help finance joint educational and research activities of university teams in the two countries. These are generally realised through:
a) scholarships awarded to students and teachers (1 to 9 month scholarships awarded to participants under 35 years of age, one-month scholarships for teachers under 45 years of age, and special scholarships given to applicants who are writing their diploma theses or dissertations)
b) cooperation projects

The DAAD Prague Information Centre disseminates information about the opportunities to study and do research in Germany, detailing the DAAD grant and scholarship programmes and giving helpful advice to people who are planning to go on a study or research sojourn in Germany.

Hlávka Foundation grants research, art and travel scholarships. This oldest Czech foundation was established in 1904 by Dr. Josef Hlávka. Undergraduate and graduate students can apply for travel grants and scholarships that would enable them to actively participate in a conference abroad, in major competitions, or through which they can finance long-term creative sabbaticals. The university rector might, in exceptional cases, request that scholarship be granted to finance an on-campus PhD study programme.
Foreign students interested in applying for scholarship through any of the above-mentioned programmes in order to study at the Faculty of Education in Prague, please contact Mrs. Zuzana Trnková (email@example.com).
