What do we offer within the STARS program?

All PhD students receive a state-guaranteed scholarship of 10.500,- Czech crowns per month in their first year of study; the scholarship increases slightly (10.500,- + additional 2.000,- once the doctor examination is successfully passed) over the course of 4 years for which it is granted. In addition to the state scholarship, the STARS program students will also be granted the STARS-scholarship of at least 10.000 CZK per month. The STARS-scholarship is guaranteed for 4-year study period for those students, who will obtain grade "A" (excellent) in regular each-year evaluation.

Their net income will therefore be at least 20.500 CZK per month (~800 EUR). The remuneration may be further augmented by the project supervisor. The PhD students accepted for the STARS program will work on the selected scientific project under the guidance of the supervisor.
