Housing and Social Stipends

UNYP students are eligible to obtain a housing stipend and /or a social stipend for the Spring 2016 semester from the Czech government.

Housing Stipend- Spring 2016 is 540 CZK per month for 6 months (5 months for students starting in the Spring 2016 semester) and is paid at the end of the semester.

Who is eligible to receive a HOUSING STIPEND?

Full-time degree-seeking students (SUNY students with a minimum of 9 semester credits/ SUNY freshmen 2015-2016 minimum of 12 credits; BBA students with a minimum of 18 semester credits /BBA freshmen 2015-2016 minimum of 24 credit ):

  • Students that DO NOT HAVE permanent residence in Prague
  • Students enrolled in programs accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (BA, BBA, IER, CMM, PSY)
  • Students that are not studying at UNYP longer than 4 years (for SUNY students) and 3 years (for BBA students) (Previous studies at other universities are included!)
  • Students that are not applying for a stipend in another study program outside of UNYP 

Please note that the Ministry of Education is the institution that determines if a particular student is eligible for Housing Stipend. Furthermore, the Ministry only considers students enrolled in their "first study program/field" or transfer students "continuing their studies in the same field" to be eligible.  Those are internal terms applied by the Ministry of Education. Whether a student is recognized as "continuing study in the same study field" is also dependent on the code under which his/her previous university reported the leaving student.

***Please note that Study Abroad and Exchange students are not eligible for the Housing Stipend.
