About the Programme

Bilateral programmes of mobility in higher education (Bilateral Scholarships) are based on bilateral agreements and programmes involving scholarship exchange. The different bilateral contracts serve as the basis for exchange between Croatia and various other countries with which Croatia has a valid agreement on cooperation in the fields of science and education.

 

Each year potential candidates from around the world are invited to apply for the Croatian Government Scholarships that are on offer to students and teachers. The Call for Applications is usually open during March and April for the next academic year. The Call is published on the official websites of both bodies that are responsible for the implementation of the Bilateral Scholarships (the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes and the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia).

 

Through the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes, Croatia offers annually a wide range of scholarships in higher education*, including scholarships for:

 

  • Partial/semester studies.
  • Full undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate studies.
  • Postdoctoral studies and research visits.
  • Summer seminar of Croatian language and culture.

 

* The number and type of scholarships differ from country to country depending on the number and category of scholarships stipulated in the valid bilateral contracts.
