Eligibility for the scholarship extends to university students outside Slovakia who are in their second level of higher education (Master’s students) or have completed at least 2.5 years of university studies in a similar program and are accepted by a higher education institution in Slovakia. PhD candidates, as well as international university teachers, researchers, and artists planning a stay in Slovakia for academic mobility, teaching, research, or artistic endeavors, are also eligible.

Applicants are required to submit a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter, a detailed study program, two recommendation letters from university teachers, and, if applicable, a bachelor’s diploma with a diploma supplement and state examination certificate.

The Slovakia National Scholarship Program, established in 2005 by the Government of the Slovak Republic, aims to foster the mobility of students, researchers, and artists. It is supported by the Slovak Ministry of Education, Science, Research, and Sport, highlighting the country’s dedication to international academic and cultural exchange.
