We do encourage students to search for outside funding to cover their programs fees and/or travel expenses. Students are encouraged to explore funding opportunities available through their home universities, non-governmental organizations and government sources, such as the Soros Foundation. Local businesses, corporations and employers are often a good source for additional scholarship help. We will be happy to provide accepted students with a letter of support for potential sponsors.
Setting Description:
Republic in order to improve the governance of public matters and resources. Prague Summer Schools (PSS) aim to contribute to international dialog on the important social and economic issues thereby bringing a large group of international students to Prague to spend one week in challenging and intensive educational environment. We founded the PSS because we believe that the exchange of views of individuals coming from different academic and cultural backgrounds based on high quality information provided during the lectures supports international understanding and may have a significant impact on the world's future.
