University Studies Grants is a grant program targeting accredited higher-education institutions worldwide with the aim to promote and support the development and launching of outstanding university courses or degree programs that deal with specific phenomena explicitly related to the Visegrad Group (V4) countries.
The grant is intended as a lump-sum, multiple-installment grant 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. The supported sums depend on the scope and quality of each project; on average the grants amount to ca. €10,000 per course and €40,000 per degree program.
Any accredited public or private university worldwide is eligible for the grant. There are no limits as to the language of instruction of the given course or degree program; each course/program must, however, secure for each semester of its enrollment at least two/three relevant guest lecturers from two different V4 countries.
