Financial support for our international students is either organised by individual faculties (see the faculty websites) or obtained via different means, such as government programmes (see programmes at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport) or private beneficaries, funds etc.
In addition, three of our faculties offer special scholarships to its students:
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (Bc., Mgr., PhD.)
Faculty of Science: STARS (Ph.D.)
Faculty of Social Sciences: Development scholarships (Bc., Mgr.)
General overview of the scholarships is available on the Study in Czechia or Study in Prague websites. Our outstanding students can also apply for a merit-based scholarship or tuition fee reduction after their first year of studies. The exact ammounts and conditions are set by the internal regulations of the respective faculty. Learn more about the scholarship and bursary rules at Charles University.
As a full-time doctoral student you will receive a monthly scholarship during the standard length of your studies (3-4 years). The amount of this scholarship depends on the faculty and ranges from CZK 10.500 to CZK 25.000 per month. It is usually supplemented by other sources of income, e.g. by awards for participation in research projects or remuneration for teaching undergraduates.
In case our students find themselves in an emergency situation or otherwise difficult position in terms of finances, the Carolina Centre is here to support them. Available bursaries and other means of help, including loans of technical aids or free counselling services are always listed on their website.
