You must apply through the CEEPUS online system at, where you need to register and fill in an electronic application.

A three-step application for CEEPUS mobility

  1. Find information on available mobility networks on the CEEPUS website. If you find a mobility network suitable for you and your institution is involved (department/course, faculty…), you should turn to the local contact person for CEEPUS at your institution, who can tell you the basic information on mobility opportunities of the network you are interested in. If your institution does not participate in the network through which you want to realise the mobility, you can apply as a free-mover (without a network).
  2. Complete the online application. Complete the application by registering on the CEEPUS system and selecting Manage Your Mobility Applications. Start the submission process by clicking on the Action icon and then follow further instructions.

IMPORTANT: If you are a student and register as a free-mover, you need to obtain a letter of acceptance from the host institution (Free-mover Letter of Acceptance) and two letters of recommendation from your home institution (Free-mover Letter of Recommendation) before completing the application. For teachers applying outside a network, a letter of acceptance (Teacher Letter – Free-mover Letter of Acceptance by the Host Institution) must be submitted. The forms for these documents can be found on the CEEPUS website, and their completed and scanned versions should be submitted when completing the online application. Austria is an exception here – when applying for mobility outside a network in that country, the mentioned documents are only submitted after receiving the notification that the application has been shortlisted, so the application is sent without these additional documents in the first phase.

  1. At some point you will receive an e-mail notification whether your scholarship application has been approved or rejected.
