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 1,448,000, the Fund will award about 400 semes­ters in total in the aca­d­e­mic year 2012/2013 (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 (see the Instructions).

Citizens of the fol­low­ing coun­tries can apply:

Albania (AL), Armenia (AM), Azerbaijan (AZ), Belarus (BY), Bosnia and Herzegovina (BA), Croatia (HR), the Czech Republic (CZ), Georgia (GE), Hungary (HU), Macedonia (MK), Moldova (MD), Montenegro (ME), Poland (PL), the Russian Federation (RU), Serbia (RS), Slovakia (SK) and Ukraine (UA). The same rules are applic­a­ble to Kosovar schol­ars.

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.

Scholarship schemes:
  • Intra-Visegrad Scholarships (within CZ, HU, PL, SK)
  • In-Coming Scholarships (from AL, BA, XK, MK, ME, RU and RS)
    • Scholarships for EaP (from AM, AZ, BY, GE, MD and UA)
  • Out-Going Scholarships (to AL, AM, AZ, BY, BA, GE, XK, MK, MD, ME, RS and UA)
  • Visegrad Scholarships at OSA (sep­a­rate fel­low­ship program)

If selected each scholar receives the schol­ar­ship fund­ing at the begin­ning of each five-month period (semes­ter) upon a writ­ten con­fir­ma­tion from the host university/institution (see Article 4 of the Contract).


Deadline for all schol­ar­ship appli­ca­tions is 31 January. Results are announced by mid-May.
