BURSARIES FOR DOCTORAL STUDENTS
Full time doctoral students receive a bursary of CZK 11,250 per month during the standard period of study (3 or 4 years depending on the valid accreditation). The period of any previous unsuccessful doctoral studies is deducted from the period for which the student is entitled to the payment of the doctoral scholarship.
The bursary is paid only to students studying in study programmes accredited in the Czech language.
The regular doctoral scholarship may be increased by an incentive scholarship for above-standard study results. This is awarded twice a year for the entire winter or summer semester, based on a decision of the subject-area board of the relevant doctoral study programme. The conditions for obtaining the incentive scholarship are communicated to the students by the relevant subject-area board, which also informs them on the allocation or non-allocation of the scholarship. The incentive scholarship ranges from 1,000 to 5,000 CZK per month. It is only available to full-time students studying in the standard length of study.
Besides this amount, selected doctoral students receive extra bursaries, usually for their research and publication activities. Doctoral students have the opportunity to participate in the Internal Grant Competition of the Internal Grant Agency (IGA), in which they can get financial resources both for their research activities and to increase their basic bursary amount.
