Dear students,

You have the opportunity to ask for Housing stipend again in Fall 2019.

Housing Stipend Fall 2019

Housing stipend is financial compensation paid by Czech government (for the purpose of housing) to those UNYP students whose permanent residence is OUTSIDE of the city of Prague.

Housing Stipend in Fall 2019 is 540 CZK per month for 4 months (or 3 months for students who started in October 2019). The total sum is paid to students at the end of the current semester (they will get and email from Accounting Office towards the end of the semester).

What do you need to apply?  Please bring following to Registrar Office (4th floor):
  • Housing Stipend form: Fill in electronically, print, sign and bring to the Registrar (the form is attached to this article at E-learning)
  • A valid identity card or passport (only if you have a new one). Please provide a copy of it. Students who already provided a copy of ID to UNYP do not have to do that.
Deadline for submitting forms to the Registrar's Office: Monday, November 4th, 2019 at 17:00.

Who is eligible to receive HOUSING STIPEND?

Full-time degree-seeking students (SUNY students with a minimum of 9 semester credits or SUNY freshmen Fall 2019 minimum of 12 credits; BBA students with a minimum of 18 semester credits /BBA freshmen Fall 2019 minimum of 24 credit; Master in Psychology students - MPS) who fulfill all following conditions:

o    Students who DO NOT HAVE their permanent residence in Prague

o    Students enrolled in programs accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (BA, BBA, IER, CMM, PSY, Master in Psychology - MPS)

o    Students who have been studying for NOT MORE than 4 years (for SUNY students), 3 years (for BBA students) and 2 years (for MPS students). Previous studies at other universities are included. (If students in their last semesters exceed the standard length of study even by days, MSMT then denies stipend for that semester.)

o    Students who do not apply for this stipend outside of UNYP

Please note it is the Ministry of Education that determines if a particular student is eligible for Housing Stipend (not UNYP). 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.

Study Abroad and Exchange students are not eligible for the Housing Stipend.


Social Stipend Fall 2019    

Who is eligible to receive social STIPEND?

How to apply?

Deadline for submitting forms to the Registrar's Office: Monday, November 4th, 2019 at 17:00.
