Students can be granted financial support in the form of a scholarship. This includes appreciation for good grades, out-of-school activities, as well as support for studies abroad, doctoral scholarships, assistance if student’s encounter difficult situations and social and accommodation scholarships. The criteria for granting scholarships are governed by the terms of the Scholarship Rules.
Only the agenda of social and accommodation scholarships is handled by the university management; other scholarships are within the competences of individual faculties.
You are entitled to an accommodation scholarship if you are studying full-time, are not studying at another university (where you commenced your studies), did not exceed the determined study time (three years for bachelor studies, two years for master studies and two years for doctoral studies), you do not live where you are studying or you are on a study visit abroad (in this case this also applies to distance studies).
It is necessary to apply for this scholarship electronically in the UIS. In the “My studies” agenda in the “Student’s Portal” link you will find the “Accommodation benefit application” form. Before sending the application, it is necessary to enter the account number for the payment of the scholarship in the “Bank accounts” option.
The application is valid during the entire period of the study programme.
The accommodation scholarship is paid retroactively for the past three months: in January (for the period from October to December), in April (for the period from January to March) and in July (for the period from April to June). No scholarship is paid for the period from July to September.
Conditions for granting accommodation scholarships are contained in the CULS Scholarship Rules
