Masaryk University opened in 2021 the new scholarship programme providing the financial support of 100,000 CZK (circa € 3,800) to students enrolled in full-time English taught programmes from developing countries or countries that are undergoing economic transformation. The new scholarship fund is designed to help the students of a very good academic performance to cover their first year of studies at Masaryk University.
The following information and documents are required in the online application:
Where should I submit my application?
The application must be submitted through the ISOIS system.
What is an UČO number?
An UČO number is a unique personal identification number for accessing MU information systems. You will obtain this unique number when you get admitted into a study program at Masaryk University.
How can I log into the ISOIS system?
The ISOIS system requires an UČO number – you will obtain this unique number when you get admitted into a study program at Masaryk University. However, you can register into the ISOIS prior to admittance by your e-mail account and apply this way.
What is a proof of vulnerable situation?
It can be any document proving your economical, health, social, or any other disadvantage. It may vary from person to person. Generally speaking, you may submit official confirmations about your dire economical situation, documents proving that you belong to an oppressed minority back in your country, that you are an asylum seeker, refugee status holder etc.
Do not upload your bank account statements as proof of your poor economic situation. In such cases, official confirmations or tax documents are required.
I finished my first year of studies, may I apply?
No, this scholarship is offered only to students who are in their freshman year (1st or 2nd semester).
I finished my first semester at MU, may I apply for this scholarship?
Yes, you can. If you are going to be in the second semester at the time of disbursement of the scholarship, you are eligible to apply.
My previous university does not provide GPA, what should I do?
If your university does not provide GPA, upload a Transcript of records with a visible grade average from your studies with an explanation of your local grading system. Ideally, try to convert your grade average to GPA if you can.
I am not sure if I am eligible to apply for this scholarship.
The scholarship is solely intended for citizens from developing countries as defined by the OECD. If you are not sure whether you come from a developing country, see this table.
You should also not be eligible for the scholarship if you already receive other form of financial support for your studies (e.g. governmental grants, scholarships for the students from particular countries).
The only exception to this is the scholarship provided to all PhD students in support of their doctoral studies.
Will I receive the confirmation of the scholarship? Can I use it for my visa application?
Yes, you will be provided with the official confirmation of scholarship (in Czech) and you can submit the confirmation along with your visa application.
When can I expect the result of my application?
We will contact all students and inform them whether they have been accepted or not after the call for applications closes. So, you can expect the result in May or June.
