The application deadline for scholarships for:

  • the winter semester is 15 June;
  • the summer semester is 31 October.

In addition to these two deadlines, there is a special deadline for freemover candidates (mobilities outside a network) – 30 November.Application process

Each application within a network is first nominated by the local contact person at the home institution, after which the home National CEEPUS Office runs a formal check and nominates it, i.e. the application is forwarded to the host institution. Upon approval by the local contact person at the host institution, the application is forwarded to the National CEEPUS Office of the host country, which, after a final check of the application and the available quota of scholarship months, awards the scholarship and informs the holder of the outcome.

Each freemover application is first checked and nominated by the home National CEEPUS Office. If nominated, the application is forwarded to the National CEEPUS Office of the host country, which makes the final decision on awarding the scholarship.
