Article 4 Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement

  1. A scholarship for outstanding academic achievement is awarded to students retroactively for excellent academic results in the previous unit of study.

The basic criterion consists in determining the average grade achieved or the weighted average grade achieved, or other similar indicator, from examinations and other graded study requirements over the previous unit of study. This indicator must be determined in accordance with Article 8 (13) of the University’s Code of Study and Examination. A scholarship is awarded to a specific number of students with the best indicator, representing at least 10% students of a faculty, a programme of study or a unit of study, or a programme of study and a unit of study, where no obstacle to granting a scholarship under Article 13 has arisen; this number of students does not include the students in the first unit of study, and unless otherwise provided in the Faculty Internal Regulation, it does not include the students in the first unit of study of a post-bachelor’s programme.

  4. The specific amount of a scholarship for outstanding academic achievement at a faculty in a given academic year is determined by the dean, following an opinion given by the academic senate of the faculty.

  5. Where the unit of study corresponds to a semester under the Faculty Internal Regulation, the Faculty Internal Regulation under paragraph 2 may provide that a scholarship is awarded to students retroactively for excellent academic results in the previous two units of study within the same academic year.

Article 12 Doctoral Bursary

  1. A doctoral bursary is awarded to all students enrolled in a full-time doctoral programme whose study does not exceed the standard length of study of the given programme of study.

  2. The amount of a doctoral bursary ranges from CZK 10,500 to CZK 25,000 per month. The specific amount within this range is determined by the dean, in accordance with the Faculty Internal Regulation under Article 4 (2) and following an opinion given by the faculty’s academic senate.

  3. After a state doctoral examination is passed, the doctoral bursary determined in accordance with paragraph 2 is increased by CZK 2,000 per month as of the following calendar month. The Faculty Internal Regulation under Article 4 (2) may provide that after the fulfilment of a student’s specific study requirement, research requirement, or other requirement(s), the doctoral bursary under paragraph 2 will be increased by another amount not exceeding in total CZK 10,000 per month.

  4. Where a regular assessment indicates the completion of an individual curriculum (*3), and where the doctoral student has achieved excellent academic results, the dean may, on the proposal of the supervisor or the Subject-Area Board, award to a student a further one-off doctoral bursary, not exceeding CZK 30,000.

  5. Where the regular assessment leads to the conclusion that the student failed to fulfil some of the study requirements of his individual curriculum (*4), the dean may, on the proposal of the Subject-Area Board, award to the student a reduced doctoral bursary for the following academic year, or reduce the already awarded bursary by up to 50%.

      b. 

    the student is enrolled in a programme taught in a foreign language; or

      c.

  6. A scholarship for outstanding academic achievement may not be awarded or paid to a student where the actual length of study exceeded the standard length of study in this programme by more than one year.

  7. In addition to a scholarship for outstanding academic achievement, a scholarship or a bursary may be awarded and paid where:

      a. 

    the student successfully completed the study; or

      b. 

    the dean adopted a decision on an interruption to the student’s studies, upon the student’s application

    and the party concerned met the award criteria while he was a student; and in the case of scholarships or bursaries awarded upon an application, the application was submitted while the party concerned was a student.

  2. The proceedings concerning a student’s application commence on the day on which a dean or the Rector received the application, if he decides in the first instance (*6 ).

  3. Own motion proceedings commence:

      a. 

    in the case of a decision awarding a scholarship or bursary, upon the issuance of the decision; and

      b. 

    in the case of a decision reducing or withdrawing a scholarship or bursary, upon the issuance of the notice on the commencement of proceedings.

  4. The student must indicate the following details in the application:

      a. 

    name and surname, as well as other names and the maiden name where appropriate, date of birth, and the address of permanent residence, as well the address for the delivery of mail if such an address differs from the address under section 63 (3) (b) of the Higher Education Act and which should be the address for mail delivery where it is not possible to deliver mail electronically (*7);

      b. 

    the subject matter of the application;

      c. 

    what is being requested; and

      d. 

    the signature (*8).

  5. If an application for study lacks the prescribed requirements, or has any other defects, the dean or the Rector will help the student to correct the deficiencies, or will invite the student to rectify the deficiencies himself, and will provide a reasonable time period therefor (*9).

  6. Where a dean or the Rector ascertains that a situation arose warranting the discontinuation of the proceedings, he will discontinue the proceedings without undue delay by adopting a resolution (*10).

  7. A decision is issued in writing, and it contains a statement part, reasoning, and notice of the right to appeal (*11).

  8. The statement part may include one or more statements, or subsidiary provisions. The statement part presents a solution to the issue in question, the applicable legal provisions, including the University/faculty internal regulations, the studentʼs identification in accordance with paragraph 4 (a), and the identification of the study in question (*12).

  9. The reasoning presents the reasons underlying the statement(s), the grounds for the issuance of the decision, the considerations which have guided the dean or the Rector in the evaluation thereof and in the interpretation of the legal regulations, and the internal University/faculty regulations (*13 )

  10. The notice of the right to appeal indicates whether or not an appeal may be filed against the decision, the time limit for filing such appeal and the time period starts to run, that the Rector will decide on the appeal, and whether the appeal should be filed with a dean or the Rector (*14).

  11. The decision issued in writing is stamped with the official stamp and signed by a person in authority (*15).

  12. The decision taken by a dean or the Rector, as first instance bodies, comes into legal force when the period for filing an appeal has expired to no effect, or once the student waives his right to appeal, as well as in cases referred to in Article 19 (19) and (20).

Article 19 Appeal

  1. A student may appeal a decision (*16). A student who waived his right to appeal after being notified of the decision no longer has the right to file an appeal.(*17). If a student withdraws an appeal once filed, he cannot file such appeal again.(*18)

  2. An appeal may be filed to contest the statement, or any of its individual statements or subsidiary provisions; an appeal filed only against the reasoning is impermissible. (*19) An appeal must clearly state the decision which is being challenged as well as what is being proposed. In addition to the elements referred to in Article 18 (4), an appeal must state in which ways the decision or the previous proceedings allegedly violate legal regulations or internal regulations.

  3. Any new facts and proposals of new evidence, which are mentioned in the appeal or during the appeal proceedings, will be taken into account when dealing with the student’s application only if such facts or motions could not have been presented earlier. Where the student claims that he was not allowed to carry out a specific act during the proceedings in the first instance, such act must be carried out simultaneously with the appeal. (*20)

  4. The period for filing an appeal is within thirty days of the date of notification of the decision. (*21) An appeal has met the deadline if the letter containing the appeal is submitted to the postal service operator on the last day of the deadline. (*22) An appeal may be lodged only after the decision has been issued. Where an appeal is filed before the decision is notified to the student, it is deemed to have been filed on the first day of the appeal period. (*23)

  5. In the case of missing, incomplete, or incorrect notification of the right to appeal, an appeal may be filed within fifteen days of the date of notification of a rectifying resolution, if such resolution has been issued, but no later than within ninety days of the date of the notification of the decision. (*24) A student who has demonstrably become acquainted with the decision may not challenge the failure to be notified of the decision. In this case, an appeal may be filed within ninety days of the date on which the student became aware of the decision. (*25)

  6. A student may apply for a waiver of the prescribed time limit for appeal within fifteen days of the date on which the obstacle that prevented him from filing an appeal ceased to exist. This application may have a suspensory effect if there is a risk of serious harm for the student. The application will not be processed unless the student files an appeal simultaneously. The prescribed time period for appeal will be waived if the student shows that he missed the deadline for serious reasons arising through no fault of his own. The dean will decide on the waiver of the prescribed time period for appeal in the form of a resolution. The prescribed time period for appeal may not be waived if one year has passed from the day on which the appeal was to be filed. (*26)

  7. A permissible appeal that was filed on time has a suspensive effect. The suspensive effect of an appeal prevents the decision from coming into legal force, becoming enforceable, or having other legal effects. (*27) The suspensive effect of an appeal may not be excluded. (*28)

  8. An appeal is filed with the dean. (*29)

  9. The dean amends the proceedings according to the circumstances; this does not apply if the appeal was filed late or if it was impermissible. (*30)

  10. The dean may change or cancel the decision if this fully satisfied the appeal. An appeal may be filed against such decision. (*31) The provisions of Article 18 (7) to (12) apply by analogy.

  11. If the dean does not find that the circumstances warrant application of the procedure under paragraph 10, he will hand over the file along with his opinion, to the appellate administrative body, i.e., to the Rector, no later than thirty days of the date on which the appeal was delivered. In case of a late or impermissible appeal, the dean will hand over the file to the Rector within ten days. In his opinion, the dean will limit himself to the statement of the reasons decisive for the assessment of the appeal as late or impermissible. (*32 )

  12. If, prior to the handover of the file to the Rector, the dean ascertains that a circumstance justifying the discontinuance of the proceedings has occurred he will, without undue delay, cancel the challenged decision and discontinue the proceedings. (*33)

  13. The Rector reviews the compliance of the appealed decision and the proceedings preceding it with the legal regulations and internal regulations. (*34) No account will be taken of the defects in the proceedings which cannot be reasonably held to have affected the compliance of the appealed decision with the legal regulations or internal regulations. (*35)

  14. If the Rector concludes that the appealed decision is in conflict with the legal regulations or internal regulations:

      a. 

    he cancels the challenged decision or a part thereof, and discontinues the proceedings;

      b. 

    he cancels the challenged decision or a part thereof, and returns the case to the dean for new proceedings. In the reasoning of such decision, the Rector states his legal opinion which is binding on the dean in new proceedings on the case. The new decision may be appealed; or

      c. 

    the Rector amends the challenged decision or a part thereof; such a change may not be made if it poses a risk of harm to the applicant due to a loss of an opportunity to file an appeal. The student is entitled to comment on the documents newly produced by the Rector on which the decision is based. If it is necessary to rectify errors in the reasoning, the Rector will change the decision in the reasoning part. The Rector may not change the challenged decision to the detriment of the student unless the challenged decision contravenes legal regulations. (*36)

  15. If the Rector fails to find a reason to apply the procedure under paragraphs 14, 16, or 17, he dismisses the appeal and affirms the appealed decision. If the Rector changes or cancels the challenged decision only in part, he will affirm the remaining part of the decision. (*37)

  16. If the Rector ascertains that a circumstance justifying the discontinuance of proceedings has arisen, he will cancel the appealed decision, and discontinue the proceedings without delay. (*38)

  17. The Rector will dismiss an appeal if it was filed late or if it is impermissible. If the decision has already come into legal force, the Rector will subsequently examine whether or not the circumstances warrant a review under review proceedings, the opening of new proceedings, or the issuance of a new decision. If the Rector finds grounds to initiate review proceedings, open new proceedings, or issue a new decision, the late or impermissible appeal is deemed to be a motion to initiate review proceedings, open new proceedings, or issue a new decision. (*39) If the Rector concludes that the appeal was filed on time and is admissible, the Rector will return the case to the dean. (*40)

  18. The Rector will issue a decision in the appeal proceedings within thirty days; the period starts to run on the date on which the file was handed over to the Rector. (*41) The provisions of Article 18 (7) to (11) apply to the Rector’s decision by analogy.

  19. No further appeal may be filed against the Rector’s decision. The Rector’s decision comes into legal force when it is notified to the student. (*42) A dean’s decision affirmed under paragraph 15 comes into legal force simultaneously with the Rector’s decision.

  20. If the student withdraws his appeal, the appeal proceedings are discontinued on the day on which the appeal is withdrawn. The appealed decision comes into legal force on the day following the discontinuance of proceedings. A resolution is issued regarding the fact that the proceedings have been discontinued. This resolution is recorded in the file and the student is notified thereof. An appeal may only be withdrawn before the issuance of the Rector’s decision. (*43)

Article 20 Follow-up

As follow-up to the decision under Article 19 (14), the Rector or the dean will take measures to ensure that the student’s rights are reinstated, and the consequences of the incorrect decision are removed or at least mitigated. (*44)
