In accordance with § 62, Paragraph 1, letter i), of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., § 91, Paragraph 4, Letter c) of the same Act, and Article 13 of the Scholarship Rules of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, I hereby set for the period beginning on the 1st of October 2023 the amount of the basic scholarship for full-time students of the doctoral study programs in the standard period of study as follows:
From the above stated date, a student of the doctoral study program is to receive a basic scholarship (as stated by § 91, Paragraph 4, Letter c) of Act No. 111/1998 Coll.) of:
1. CZK 10 000 (in words: ten thousand Czech crowns) per calendar month for a student in the first twelve months of study and further for students in the thirteenth and subsequent months of study, on the condition that he/she has fulfilled the duty of attaining the credits for a literature review on the subject of his/her dissertation and presenting the plan and methodology of his/her dissertation at a seminar of his/her department (i.e., he/she has obtained the appropriate credits);
Students who have already attained the credit for the literature review and for the methodology seminar presented at his/her department or institute, have fulfilled the regular study duties and other conditions as detailed in the Rules for Study, and have presented the results of their scientific work*) in the following ways may, at the proposal of the supervisor, receive a higher basic scholarship as follows:
2. CZK 11 000 (in other words: eleven thousand Czech crowns) per calendar month if they have personally presented a poster at an international conference**) or are a member of the authorship team of an article published in a journal with an impact factor;
3. CZK 11 500 (in words: eleven thousand five hundred Czech crowns) per calendar month under the condition that he/she has made a presentation at an international conference**);
4. CZK 12 500 (in words: twelve thousand five hundred Czech crowns) per calendar month if they have published the results of their scientific work in the form of a first-author publication in a journal with an impact factor.
Reduction or withdrawal of the scholarship
The scholarship of students in the thirteenth and subsequent months of study who have not yet fulfilled the obligations set out in Article I, paragraph 1 is reduced to 1 000,- (in words: one thousand Czech crowns) per calendar month.
Based on non-fulfillment of other study obligations, the Specialist Board can suggest to the dean the reduction of the scholarship of a particular student by up to 75%.
If the conclusion of the regular evaluation of doctoral study progress by the Specialist Board is a statement that the student has not fulfilled the obligations according to the individual study plan (evaluation C), the Dean may decide to reduce or withdraw the scholarship.
The reduction is effective from the following calendar month to the calendar month in which the Dean, on the proposal of the Specialist Board, again determines the amount of the scholarship according to paragraphs 1 to 4.
The basic scholarship is not awarded to students who are demonstrably financially secured by a special scholarship or salary under international agreements. The basic scholarship may be awarded to doctoral students who study in the full-time form of study for a standard period of study. All periods of previous unsuccessful studies the doctoral study program are to be included in the calculation of the study period.
