Outline

The National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic supports mobility of international PhD students, university teachers, researchers and artists for scholarship stays at higher education institutions and research organisations in Slovakia. The programme is funded by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.

 

Eligibility

  • PhD students whose higher education or scientific training takes place outside Slovakia and who are accepted by a public, private or state university or a research institution in Slovakia eligible to carry out a doctoral study programme (e.g. the Slovak Academy of Sciences) for an academic mobility to study and/or conduct research in Slovakia.

  • International university teachers, researchers and artists who are invited to a teaching and/or research/artistic stay in Slovakia by an institution with a valid certificate of eligibility to carry out research and development, which is not a business company and it has its headquarters in Slovakia.

Citizens of any country in the world (except the citizens of Slovakia) can apply for a scholarship stay in Slovakia in the framework of the National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic.
