Study guide


We provide financial support to our students in the form of various scholarships. They aim to support our students in their study-related activities based on meeting specific criteria. Scholarships can serve, for example, as a social benefit for students in a difficult life situation or as material praise not only for exceptional results.

Rules for Granting Scholarships

All types of scholarships are listed and described in detail in the Scholarship Rules.

  • Scholarships are usually disbursed by wire transfer to your bank account that you have filled in the KOS system. You can set your account number in the system as follows: tab User » Show Personal Details » Change Details » Bank Account » Save Changes.
  • If you have not filled in your bank account in time, the cashier will disburse your scholarship (room T9:308) during office hours.

Cases when scholarships cannot be granted

Merit scholarships

Merit scholarships is granted to bachelor’s and master’s students for excellent study results achieved in individual semesters.

Amount of scholarships

The amount of merit scholarships is graded according to a weighted grade point average into 4 categories. The FIT Academic Senate approves the total amount of funding. The scholarship amount is further limited by the scholarship fund, which is filled with fees for extended studies. At the same time, however, these funds cannot be used other than for scholarships.

Criteria for granting

You are entitled to merit scholarships as a bachelor’s or master’s student if you have met all of the following criteria in a given semester:

  • You obtained a minimum of 30 credits for completed courses.

  • The number of graded courses was greater than or equal to 4.

  • The weighted study average of graded courses in the given semester was less than or equal to 1.50.

  • You studied in a full-time or part-time study programme and within the standard duration of studies (3 years for a bachelor’s degree, 2 years for a master’s one).

  • Suppose you exceed the standard duration of studies by a maximum of one year but meet the other criteria and have also spent at least one semester on a study abroad programme. In that case, you can apply for an exceptional scholarship in writing.

Details are further specified in Article 3 of the Rules for Granting Scholarships.

Application for scholarships

You do not need to apply for merit scholarships. Based on the study results entered in the KOS system, entitlements to a merit scholarship are generated automatically.

Exceptions when it is necessary to apply in writing are, for example, students who have been on a study abroad programme during their studies and have thus exceeded the standard duration of studies.
