Scholarships

The  Prishtina  International  Summer  University  distinguishes  two  categories  of non-Kosovar participants: Participants  that are entitled  to a scholarship &  those that are not.  If you are a citizen of one of  the eligible countries (Albania, Bosnia and  Herzegovina,  Croatia,  Macedonia,  Montenegro,  and  Serbia),  you  will automatically be considered for a scholarship.

Be aware  that scholarship students must attend at  least 80% of  their classes.  If you  fail  to meet  this requirement, your scholarship will be discontinued and your accommodation cancelled.

For all those who are awarded a scholarship, the following benefits apply:

  • Free accommodation in  the university dormitory. Room shared with one other student.
  • Travel  stipend.  In most  cases,  the  stipend  will  cover  the  total  sum  of  your travel expenses  to and  from Prishtina. However,  for some  itineraries,  the  travel stipend will only partially cover  the costs.  In  this case, additional costs will have to be covered by the participant him/herself
  • Travel Stipend:
    Albania €50
    BiH  €100
    Croatia  €150
    Montenegro €50
    Macedonia €50
    Serbia €50
  • Students will receive three daily meals at the student restaurant.

Please note  that you have  to be a citizen of one of  the scholarship countries  in order  to be eligible  for a scholarship. For  instance: a Dutch student studying  in Bosnia will not be able to apply for a scholarship. UP requests that you advance the necessary payments. Participants who receive a travel stipend need to keep all  receipts  for  travel  costs made. Without  receipts,  no  reimbursements  can  be made.

Participants who do not receive a scholarship will have to cover all costs affiliated with  their  participation  themselves,  i.e.  travel,  visa,  accommodation,  food,  etc. However, they will not be charged any tuition fee. If desired, accommodation can be arranged for these participants in the university dormitory. The cost of staying in the dormitory will be posted on the website and is expected to be around 50 € per week, including 3 daily meals at the student restaurant.
