Who can get an Accommodation Grant and how to apply?

Masaryk University students who meet conditions set out in section 8 of the MU Scholarship and Bursary Regulations may be awarded an accommodation grant. The accommodation grant is paid out by MU in two scholarship periods: 1 January to 30 June and 1 July to 31 December.

In order to be eligible for the grant, each student must confirm that he/she meets the required conditions for receiving the accommodation grant (previously conducted in the form of an application submission). Conditions are verified on the basis of national student records; the format and content of required information as well as deadlines for confirming the fulfilment of accommodation grant conditions are stipulated by MU Measure No. 5/2017.

Students must confirm the fulfilment of these conditions electronically via the MU Information system from 1 November to 30 November (autumn semester) and from 15 March to 15 April (spring semester). In case the last day of these periods falls on a Saturday, a Sunday or a holiday, the period in question is extended to the first subsequent workday. Prior to confirming eligibility for the accommodation grant, each student is responsible for checking or updating their permanent residence address in the IS MU.

The decision to award/deny the accommodation grant is delivered to each student via the IS MU following the end of the period for condition fulfilment confirmation; payments are deposited to the given bank account number after the decision comes into the force, i.e. after the 30-day appeal period has expired.

All scholarship payments are made to accounts listed in the IS MU (see above).

The deadline for confirming accommodation grant eligibility cannot be extended and accommodation grant payments cannot be claimed retroactively. The grant also cannot be awarded in part, e.g. in case a student terminates his/her studies during the course of a semester prior to the issuance of a decision awarding the accommodation grant.

In case a student deems that the IS MU has wrongly assessed his/her accommodation grant eligibility, he/she may contact the Office for Studies of the Rector’s Office (hufova@rect.muni.cz) prior to the relevant deadline.
