Masaryk University offers financial support of 100,000 CZK (circa 4,100 EUR) to students enrolled in bachelor's and master's full-time programmes taught in languages other than Czech and coming from countries chosen according to the international marketing strategy of MU.
The Newcomers‘ scholarship fund is designed to help students with outstanding academic performance cover their first year of studies at Masaryk University and help them transition to life in a different country. This scholarship will not cover your entire studies, just the first year.
In response to strategic management decisions, the Newcomers' Scholarship has undergone a conceptual update. The selection of eligible countries aligns with MU's international marketing strategy, aiming to strengthen our university's global influence and embrace diversity.
