CEEPUS is an acronym for “Central European Exchange Program for University Studies”. The main activity of CEEPUS are university networks operating joint programs ideally leading to Joint Degrees, esp. Joint Doctoral Programs. CEEPUS covers mobility grants for students and teachers in this framework.
Students and faculty members (i.e. the teaching, research and/or artistic staff) of an eligible CEEPUS University that are also citizens of a CEEPUS member state are invited to apply for a scholarship. Students need to have completed two semesters of a regular course of studies by the time they are being exchanged with CEEPUS. Teachers need to teach or supervise 6 hours per work week (5 days) during their exchange. The list of eligible universities and units can be found here.
Current member countries are Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia. Prishtina/Kosovo is also participating.
With CEEPUS, there is no transfer of funds: There is an internal currency of “1 scholarship month” instead. Each country pays its INCOMING students and teachers and has to pledge at least 100 scholarship months per academic year. The CEEPUS Agreement also specifies that these grants be comprehensive grants linked to the local cost of living. So far, experience has shown that this system works very well.
