The Government of the Slovak Republic approved the establishment of the National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic for the support of mobility of students, PhD students, university teachers, researchers and artists in 2005. Scholarships within the National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic are financed from the state budget of the Slovak Republic and from the European Union – NextGenerationEU in the framework of the Investment: „Support of internationalisation of the academic environment “Component: „Attracting and retaining talent” of the Recovery and Resilience Plan of the Slovak Republic.
The National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic supports study/research/teaching/artistic mobility of international students, PhD students, university teachers, researchers and artists at higher education institutions and research organisations. It supports two-way mobility - international scholarship holders to Slovakia, as well as Slovak scholarship holders abroad. The programme offers scholarships to cover living costs during the stay and travel allowances (all categories in case of scholarship holders from Slovakia; students and PhD students in case of international scholarship holders).
