PhD projects & Funding
Types of project funding:
- base scholarship: all PhD students will receive for the 4-year duration of their studies a state-guaranteed stipend of net 11 000 CZK/month, which increases to net 12 500 CZK/month in the second year and finally to net 14 500 CZK/month after passing state doctoral exam..
- grant supplements: individual grants can supplement the base scholarship. Due to limited duration of grants (typically 3-5 years), the amount and duration of supplement differs and is indicated for each project. Extension of the supplement is not guaranteed.
- fully-funded: the project offers net total funding at the minimal level of 22 000 CZK/month for the normal duration of PhD studies. Note that depending on the grant and institutional policies, the net income may be higher.
Students have the possibility to apply for additional funds for salary, travel, and equipment at the Grant Agency of the Charles University.
PhD students can take advantage of subsidized meals, discounted public transport, possibility of staying in student dormitories, and free "Czech as foreign language" classes. There are no tuition or fees for PhD students. The price level in Prague can be estimated at Numbeo.
