The creation of the National Scholarship Programme to support the mobility of students, PhD. students, university teachers, researchers and artists was approved by the Government of the Slovak Republic in 2005. The National Scholarship Programme is financed by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.
The scholarships are intended for students and PhD. students of Slovak universities (also in case the PhD. studies are carried out at an external educational institution within the terms of the Higher Education Act, e.g. at the Slovak Academy of Sciences) to cover the living costs of a study stay during the second stage of higher education (master's/engineering/PhD. studies), or a study or research stay during the doctoral studies at a selected foreign university or research institute.
Students, full-time PhD. students, university teachers, researchers and artists of the Slovak Academy of Sciences who are permanent residents of the Slovak Republic may apply for a travel grant in connection with their planned study or research stay abroad.
The National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic is also intended to support the mobility of foreign students, PhD. students, university teachers, research and artistic staff for stays at Slovak universities and research organizations.
