Visegrad Scholarship Program (VSP)
The International Visegrad Fund offers Master’s and Post-Master’s scholarships awarded to selected scholars for periods of 1 or 2 semesters (with the exception of Master’s scholarships within the In-Coming scheme where 1– to 4-semester scholarships can be awarded). Given the annual budget of €1,190,800, the Fund will award over 300 semesters in total in the academic year 2014/2015 (more information).
Applicants whose current (i.e., at the time of applying) university or employer is further than 1,500 km from the selected host university/institute are eligible for a one-time travel grant.
Citizens of the following countries and territories can apply:
Albania (AL), Armenia (AM), Azerbaijan (AZ), Belarus (BY), Bosnia and Herzegovina (BA), Czech Republic (CZ), Georgia (GE), Hungary (HU), Kosovo (XK), Macedonia (MK), Moldova (MD), Montenegro (ME), Poland (PL), Russia (RU), Serbia (RS), Slovakia (SK), and Ukraine (UA).
The scholarship program is not applicable to, nor does it cover full studies within joint programs (i.e., double– or multiple-degree). The scholarship does not cover studies/research at other institutions or in other countries than those specified in the application form. The scholars are expected to work on their study/research projects at the host university/institution for the entire scholarship period. All applicants must have finished at least 4 semesters of university at the time of applying.
