  1. Hi,I'm from Algeria and I'm interested,but,I have a question,let's say if I did the application and I'm accepted and …and….but I fail to pass to the next year,will the scholarship remain available?I mean it works in the second "first year",right? okey,I'm just asking after all I will do it to the next year 🙂 …thnx

    1. Dear Baha,

      We do not possess that kind of information, but most of the scholarships work on that principle. You must pass successfully each year and most probably you will have to maintain a solid grade point average in order to keep the scholarship.
      For more information please use the contact email above.

    1. Dear Samuel,

      Here is the link of the Official call for the scholarship http://www.mon.gov.mk/mk/konkursimon/996-minister
      You can find the Application form (yes, it's in English, don't know what was exactly your problem with it), and you can download it right where it says "Application form". The post is in English, so I don't think you should really have any difficulties with reading it.

    1. Dear grace,

      That is the e-mail address provided in the official call. If it's not working then there is nothing we can really do about it. You might want to try and contact the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Macedonia at the following e-mail [email protected] and ask what you should do. That's the best I can do to help.

      Kind regards

  7. Dear Sir/Madame
    I am Shanti from Indonesia, Now I m in my XI year. I want to apply this macedonian scholarship next year. I want to know about admision of the college/university in macedonian as in Indonesia the academic year ends at Juni.
    Regards

  8. sir it it grace that is still writing from Cameroon ,thanks for your reply but the problem is with the server of mon.gov.mk not with Mrs biljana email address ,and i wish to know if the server would be repair before the application dateline since the contact you have given is still mon.gov.mk with same server .I have sent my application but my teachers are unable to send their recommendation letters.i wish to know if i will be consider after the closing date the first of June

    1. Dear grace,

      If it's a problem with the server, then there is nothing we can do about it, just hope they fix it on time. My advice would be to try every day and see if the problem is fixed, and if it's not, then you might try and sending the rest of your application by post to:
      Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Macedonia
      Ul. Mito Hadzivasilev Jasmin, bb, 1000 Skopje
      1000 Skopje
      Macedonia

      Just keep in mind to explain the reason for doing so (that you couldn't send it by e-mail, and waited until the last day for the problem to be fixed, and so on…), but I do not guarantee that your application will be accepted. I am only providing you with a possible solution for the problem, I am not telling you that if you do this, you will be accepted.

      Hope this helps

  15. Hi,I'm from Sierra Leone and I'm interested,but,I have a question,let's say if I did the application and I'm accepted and i have completed my diploma prgramme,will the scholarship remain available?I mean it works in the degree level",right? okey,I'm just asking after all I will do it to the next year 🙂 …thnx

    1. Dear Alhaji,

      Do you mean to have completed your diploma on this university after acceptance? The scholarship lasts as long as the programme, so if it is 2 years – it will run 2 years to provide you completing the programme, but you won't receive the scholarship after completion. However, please note that this opportunity is closed now, and if you are interested for this one, you will need to check whether it will opened next year. Hope, the answer helps you.

      Kind regards,
      Mladiinfo team
