MEYS Intergovernmental Exchange Programmes Scholarship Awards in Czech Republic 2021

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MEYS) invites applications for its MEYS Intergovernmental Exchange Programmes Scholarship Awards in the Czech Republic in 2021.

Annually, MEYS offers scholarships to foreign nationals within the framework of intergovernmental exchange programmes arranged with specific countries. These scholarships can only be granted to candidates officially recommended for the award by the appropriate authorities in the eligible countries. These authorities collect the applications, set the closing date for applications and organize the selection procedure.

Worth of Award
For the academic year 2021/2022, the scholarship amounts to

  • CZK 9,000 per month for those who do not hold a Master’s degree or equivalent and
  • CZK 9,500 per month for holders of a Master’s degree or equivalent.

This is unless they enrol in another Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme in the Czech Republic.


  • Affordable accommodations at student dormitories are offered as well as the possibility to take meals at student catering facilities.
  • Plus, scholarship holders are exempted from tuition fees.


  • Scholarships of this type are designed for university/college students or graduates and PhD candidates. That is exceptionally for academic staff members who wish to undertake study or research visits to one of the Czech public institutions of higher education.
  • However, the scholarships are not intended for summer language courses. This is because a separate notification of scholarships for participation in the Summer Schools of Slavonic Studies is published on the official website.

How to Apply

  • By way of applications, kindly note that if applications are sent directly to the MEYS by individual applicants, they will not be processed.
  • For this reason, nominations and application dossiers must be submitted to the MEYS by the appropriate authorities in the eligible countries.

In view of this, each application dossier must comprise 2 copies of a completely and legibly filled out application form. Thus,

Students whose study/research stays up to 30 days, should provide

While students whose study/research exceeds 30 days should provide

  • academic curriculum vitae;
  • list of publications (if applicable);
  • a detailed plan of study/research;
  • two letters of recommendation from academic supervisors or an employer;
  • photocopy of diploma (if applicable);
  • certified transcript(s) of records;
  • passport / ID copy.

Deadline: It is very important to know that the closing dates for applications are set by the appropriate authorities in the eligible countries.

  • Therefore, the deadlines differ in individual countries but are usually fixed for the very beginning of the calendar year. This, of course, is in order to meet the subsequent schedule of the admission procedure.
