The Grant Agency of the University of South Bohemia (GAJU) supports students in two ways:
a) as members of the team projects (managed by a JU employee, but at least half of the team members must be students). The projects last for three years and there may be a turnover of students during the project‘ duration. The project enables the team members to draw funds for research activities, including travel expenses and regular and extraordinary scholarships. Each included student must be within the standard period of study plus one year.
b) as a principal investigator of individual projects (submitted by students), which are usually focused on research activities carried out by students of the doctoral study program in full-time study (and during the standard study time).
The duration of an individual project is 1 or 2 years.

After your return, you must submit the FINAL REPORT, in which you describe fulfilment of the goals specified in the motivation letter, and attach a CONFIRMATION LETTER from the visited institution about the length of your visit.
Every study or research stay abroad has to be registered BEFORE your departure (you can find the form named Student´s international mobility form at https://www.prf.jcu.cz/en/faculty/documents/forms).
Do not forget to ask for a CONFIRMATION LETTER from the visited institution about the length of your visit at the end of your stay (to receive credits).

- Goals (clearly defined)
- Financial budget (airfare or ticket price, accommodation price: cheap accommodation of dormitory type,...; what other financial resources you have - your supervisor´s project, support from the Academy of Sciences, ... SPECIFY).
If the final length of your stay will be shorter than specified in your motivation letter or you will change the destination to a cheaper country, the financial support will be reduced proportionally.
What is taken into account?
- length of the stay and the level of expenses for the visited country, together with the total amount of financial means which are available;
- each student can ask for a financial support of no more than one internship per year (from this project);
- internship of students who have not spent at least one month at a research stay abroad yet will be preferred;
- in the case of an internship longer then 3 months, only support up to three months can be offered.
Do you need to submit the Individual Study Plan, to report your internship for registration, to reimburse teaching, to interrupt your study, to register for the state exam/dissertation defense, to fill out the annual report for the first time (or look at the instructions on how to fill out the Annual Report submitted last year for this year)?
