National Higher Education Scholarship

Students with excellent performance are awarded national higher education scholarships by the competent Minister on the initiative of the University. You may apply for a scholarship under the competent Minister’s calls for applications, if you are a student attending an undergraduate programme or a second-cycle or a single cycle master’s programme; and you have registered for two semesters and earned at least 55 credit points during your studies; and you have had outstanding academic results, a Grade Point Average of at least 4.5, in the previous two semesters during your studies at the University; and you have carried out outstanding professional and community work.

The scholarship is awarded for a full academic year (10 months) under open calls for applications. Calls are announced by the Vice-Rector for Education. Applications are checked and ranked by the Student Social Committee. Under the powers delegated by the Senate, the Vice-Rector for Education makes proposals to the competent Minister for awarding National Higher Education Scholarships. The competent Minister decides on the award of scholarships.

Applications are assessed on the basis of students’ academic achievements and professional and community activities. Academic achievements are automatically retrieved through Neptun, so you do not need to upload any certificates in this regard. However, you are required to prove your professional or public affairs activities by official documents. You can find a list of these documents in the current call for applications and in the Regulations on Student Fees and Benefits.
