AIA - MEYS government grants
The Academic Information Agency (AIA) is a part of the Centre for International Cooperation in Education, a subsidised organization funded by the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport of the Czech Republic with a view to implementing tasks related to education, training, and other contacts with foreign countries.
- It collects, processes, and disseminates information about education opportunities abroad for Czech citizens (chiefly HE students, postgraduate students, and teachers).
- Drawing on MEYS documents, it provides (always before the start of academic year) an overview of the comprehensive range of supported mobilities grounded in international agreements for the following academic year.
- It runs competitive selections (excepting the quota system) for supported mobility activities abroad based on international agreements. Based on MEYS instructions, it ensures administration and organization connected to the selection of students for advertised scholarship programmes abroad throughout the academic year. The AIA staff provide consultation service concerning the scholarships.
- Its website continuously publishes other supported mobilities outside international agreements, as well as other study abroad programmes.
A SEARCH ENGINE serves to search for study abroad options by country.
