Introductory word

The Faculty of Science has raised the merit scholarship

Students of the Faculty with excellent study results who are entitled to the merit scholarship will be better of this year. Since September 1, this scholarship has been doubled by the decision of the Faculty´s Management. The students may now count with CZK 10,000 for an academic year, which is CZK 1,000 per month, compared to last year´s CZK 5,000 total.

„We have decided to raise the scholarship because we want to reward students who study properly and have excellent results. It may be a good motivation for others as well. The raise was made possible due to enough financial resources in the Scholarship fund,“ said Ivo Frébort, the Dean. If the Scholarship fund continues to be filled as in the past three years, there will be an opportunity for further increasing of this scholarship.

Merit scholarship may be granted to a student with maximum GPA of 1.5 for the past academic year. Granting the scholarship is decided without an application and is paid out in regular contributions. Also students of daily study who graduate with honors after their Final state exam are entitled to the merit scholarship. In such cases the scholarship amounts to CZK 6,000 and is paid out as one-off.

Last year the merit scholarship was granted to 150 students, the Faculty has paid out CZK 750,000 in total. As of January 1, 2017 the balance of the Scholarship fund equaled to CZK 12.6 million, and the Faculty has drawn approximately CZK 2.3 million. The fund is now also used for Fischer´s scholarship for foreign students. The fund´s income side comes from tuition fees of students who exceed the ordinary time of study.

The merit scholarship is within the University awarded also at the Faculty of Law, where students with GPA 1.2 receive CZK 12,000, students with GPA 1.4 then CZK 6,000. For example the Medical Faculty of Faculty of Arts do not grant such scholarship at all.
