Our online applications opened on 1 January 2023 for new applicants. We need to receive everything from you by Sunday 12 March 2023.
You can save your application at any time while you are filling it in and come back to it later.
You need to fill in our grant application form and submit it with all the necessary documents listed. You can submit these documents at any time during the application process.
There are quite a few documents and some may take longer to obtain, so we recommend completing the application well in advance – preferably several weeks before the actual deadline.
What to attach to your application
Message to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. What interests you in your field, why you want to study it at your chosen university, and especially why the Foundation should support you in that.
A letter of recommendation from one of your teachers or someone who is helping you to develop academically or artistically.
A short essay in Czech on “What I would like to achieve in my chosen field, and how I would like to change it”. Your essay must not be more than 1,000 words long.
Confirmation that you are a student of a secondary school or higher-education institution, or that you have completed your secondary education.
Kopie dokladů o jazykových zkouškách z cizích jazyků, pokud takové doklady máš.
Evidence of your family’s economic situation. For example, confirmation from an employer about the income of members of your joint household, tax returns, confirmation of eligibility for social and other benefits from the state, etc.
Confirmation of volunteer work, relevant work-related activities during secondary school or the results of Olympiads and other secondary-school competitions. These documents can be scans of diplomas, confirmation from your supervisor if you have done relevant work experience, confirmation of volunteer work, etc. We are also interested in your own personal projects.
If you are already studying with the Foundation’s support, you need to reapply for a grant for each subsequent year.

From this date on, you can fill in an online application form and upload the necessary documents.
