Based on Section 95 of Act No.131/2002 on Higher Education, the university provides its students with a scholarship from the state budget or from the university's own resources. UJS students are entitled to three types of scholarships. Students with excellent grades are entitled to a benefit scholarship. Students who come from underprivileged families can apply for a social scholarship. Students with outstanding performance may be awarded a special scholarship by the Rector. In addition, doctoral students (i.e. students in the third cycle of studies) receive a doctoral scholarship.


Social scholarship

The aim of the social scholarship is to make higher education more accessible to students from socially disadvantaged families.

Every student of the first full-time study at a university in Slovakia who has permanent residence in the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to a social scholarship, provided that he or she has not exceeded the standard length of studies and that his or her family's monthly income is not higher than the income threshold determined on the basis of the minimum subsistence level. A student in the third cycle of studies (PhD) is not entitled to a social scholarship.
