All Higher Education Institutions recognized by the state (i.e., by the government, relevant ministry, etc.) and institutes of Academies of Sciences (hereinafter only "the host") are eligible to be host institutions. The aim of the Visegrad Scholarships is to support the mobility of students and researchers among the specified countries.

- A scan of a valid identification document (photo ID card for EU citizens, passport for non- EU citizens);

- A scan of a transcript of records for the last two duly terminated semesters (students of bachelors program can document a single semester provided that they are applying in the first year of their studies); and

- post- masters studies:
- A scan of a letter of acceptance issued by the host indicating length and approving working plan of the study/research no older than 4 months when submitting the application.
Chapter IV- Selection and Approval
Deadline for the applications is March 15 at 11:59:59 CET (noon) each year, unless stipulated otherwise on the fund’s website. The earliest date for commencement of the study/research project is September of the respective year.
1 This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR1244/1999 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
The Fund shall review each application with regard to its content and its compliance with the requirements. Only eligible applications are to be evaluated by the Selection Committee.
The Selection Committee shall consist of at least four representatives of the academia (one from each Member State) and at least four representatives of relevant state institutions responsible for higher education (one per Member State).
The members of the Selection Committee shall evaluate all eligible applications based on their merits. The Fund shall summarize the records from all selection sessions and present to the Council of Ambassadors a final list of recommended applicants taking into consideration the principles of distribution of financial resources approved in the given year Fund’s budget.
At its session (by May 31 each year), the Council of Ambassadors shall approve the final lists of successful applicants together with a reserve list of substitutes used in case of cancellations. The decision made by the Council of Ambassadors is final and shall present no grounds for legal proceedings and require no detailed reasoning.
In case the distance between the current university/employer and the host of the scholar is more than 1,500 km, the Fund can provide a travel grant to selected scholars. The travel grant is a one- time contribution of the Fund to cover travel expenses of the scholar related to the approved study/research project. The travel grant will be provided at the beginning of the scholarship period together with the 1st installment of the scholarship after fulfilling the conditions of its disbursement.
The Fund shall have the obligation to inform the applicants of the approval or rejection of their applications by the Council of Ambassadors by May 31 of the respective year.
The Fund shall cover expert fees to the Selection Committee members for evaluation of applications.
Chapter V- Contracting and Conditions of Scholarship Disbursement
Prior to signing the contract, scholars shall have at their disposal written proof of acceptance by the host indicating that she/he was accepted for the respective number of semesters (corresponding with the amount of granted scholarship) within the full- time bachelors/masters/postmasters program. Non- compliance with this requirement shall result in termination of the scholarship. The scholar shall be held responsible for the accuracy of the information inserted to the Fund’s online system based on which the contract between the Fund and the scholar shall be drawn up.
The scholar shall have the obligation to study or to conduct research in compliance with the time limit and financial conditions agreed upon in the contract. The payments from the Fund will be transferred in the beginning of each semester (a 5- month period in case of post- masters researchers) after the Fund receives a written confirmation stating the date of the start of the studies of the scholar and signed contract; further installments (if relevant) will be transferred to the account of the scholar after the Fund receives following documents:
· bachelors/masters scholars:
- Transcript of records with at least 30 credits (ECTS) obtained for the previous semester
- Confirmation of continuation of studies from the host
· post- masters scholars:
- Confirmation of continuation from the host in the form of a brief assessment of the scholar’s achievements and the dates of the planned completion
Scans of the relevant documents are to be uploaded into the Fund’s online system directly by each scholar.
The Fund shall support the host by a lump sum for each semester of the studies supported by the Visegrad Scholarship. The lump sum in case of bachelors/masters studies is to support the host in order not to charge additional tuition fees to the scholar. The lump sum in case of post- masters studies is to provide material and personal assistance to the scholar in her/his research.
The host is obliged to conclude the contract with the Fund in order to receive the lump sum together with the 1st disbursement of the scholarship but no later than by the end of the scholarship period of the respective scholar. The lump sum is disbursed upon reception of the written contract between the Fund and the host and between the Fund and the scholar, and a written confirmation stating the date of the start of the study/research of the scholar.
The scholar shall inform the Fund of any other governmental scholarship he/she will receive from any of the Member State or the European Union simultaneously with the scholarship of the International Visegrad Fund. The Fund may, based on an individual basis, determine whether to uphold or withdraw its offer to the scholar in that case.
The scholar is obliged to submit to the Fund the following documents 30 calendar days after the termination of the studies covered by the Visegrad Scholarship at the latest.
· bachelors/masters studies:
- Copy of the bachelors/masters diploma, if obtained;
- Transcript of records with at least 30 credits (ECTS) obtained for the last semester covered by the Visegrad Scholarship;
· post- masters studies:
- A final report summarizing the results of the research confirmed by the relevant representative of the host (e.g. supervisor)
In case the scholar fails to fulfill her/his duties toward the host, through her/his own fault, or voluntarily terminates the studies or research, she/he shall be obliged to return to the Fund all the funding already paid within the scholarship in accordance with the relevant provisions of the contract concluded between the scholar and the Fund.
These Rules shall enter into force on the day of their approval by the Conference of Ministers.
Ingyenes e-mail tanfolyamMagam csináljam vagy bízzak meg egy szakembert? Akármelyik utat választja van egy minimum, amit mindenképpen tudnia kell.
Legalább ennyit a
Ha Ön(ök) csinálják, akkor magától értetődő, hogy érteni kell hozzá, ha mást bíznak meg, akkor annyi tudásra lesz szükségük, hogy tudjanak megrendelni és átvenni.
Ezt a tudást szerezheti meg ezen a tanfolyamon, ami egyben jó alap arra, hogy ha saját maga vág bele könnyű legyen hozzátanulni.
Ne csak olvassa és nézze (filmek is lesznek a leckékben), csinálja is.
A forrásteremtésnél ezt alig kell magyarázni, hiszen elméletben forrást szerezni enyhén szólva marhaság.
Ezért arra kérem, hogy az egyes levelekben olvasottakat azonnal valósítsa meg a gyakorlatban.
Ne feledje, akármilyen kis lépés sokkal többet ér, mint az álldogálás a rajtvonalnál...
Az egyes leckéket e-mailben kapja meg, hetente egyet.
Jó tanulást és eredményes forrásszerzést kívánok!
