Visegrad University Studies Grant for Universities

Deadline: 10/11/2010
Annual budget: €280,000

The Visegrad University Studies Grant is a grant program designed for universities with the aim to promote and support the development and launching of outstanding university courses or study programs (i.e. degree programs) that deal with specific phenomena explicitly related to the Visegrad Group countries. The grant is intended as a lump-sum, one-installment grant (in the amount of EUR 15,000 for a selected course and EUR 50,000 for a selected degree program) awarded to university departments, schools or faculties, which can present the course’s/program’s thorough syllabus/curriculum and confirm its planned long-term enrollment.

Any public or private university in the world is eligible for the grant. The course/program can be taught in any language. The course/program is expected to secure for each semester of its enrollment at least two relevant guest lecturers from two countries of the Visegrad Group (different from that of the applicant).
