The International Relations Office and the Office of Science, Research and Doctoral Studies of the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences announce the possibility to apply for a contribution to travel costs (the so-called "Student Mobility Support Grant") to students of bachelor's, master's or doctoral studies. The financial support refers to the partial coverage of travel costs associated with the preparation of the Bc./MSc./Ph.D. thesis in collaboration with a foreign university; in the case of a Ph.D. students, they can apply for internship support at Czech and foreign excellent institutions both in the university environment and outside it. Trips with a research purpose (in connection with the preparation of a qualification thesis) will be preferred over trips to summer schools. However, trips to summer schools, seminars, and conferences may be supported.
