Online Application

Application Deadline: 15.12.2020 (EarlyBird), 11.1.2021 (Final Extended). Before submitting the application please review the Application terms specified hereunder.

Although there are application deadlines, students are accepted on a rolling basis. In order to allow time to carefully review all student application materials, an e-mail notifying the application status to Prague Winter Schools Courses (Prague Summer Schools) will be sent to applicants approximately 14 days after the application is received. Applications received by the early bird application deadline of December 15th will receive preference in admission decisions. Late applications may be considered. However, late applicants run the risk of finding the program full. All students will be informed about admissions decisions by January 15th. Participants will be selected according to the following three criteria:

  1. Educational Background (Year, Grade Point Average and Area of Study)
  2. Statement of Purpose
  3. Level of English (if applicable)

Approximately 30 students will be admitted to every program of the Prague Winter Course (Prague Summer School). We intend to restrict the class size to ensure interactive courses and discussions. We aim to create a truly international student body. Students must be currently enrolled in a college or university or be recent graduates. The Prague Winter Schools (Prague Summer Schools) admit both undergraduate and graduate-level students. Priority will be given to students with at least some academic background related to the topics of Prague Winter Schools (Prague Summer Schools). Nevertheless, students of other academic backgrounds, but with a strong demonstrated interest in the Winter/Summer School topic, will be considered on an equal basis. Students admitted to Prague Winter Courses (Prague Summer Schools) are expected to participate fully in the program by attending all classes, guest lectures and social networking events.

Unfortunately, as a non-profit organization, SCHOLA EMPIRICA is not able to provide students with financial aid. Nonetheless, we do encourage students to explore funding opportunities available through their home universities, non-governmental organizations and government sources. A good place to start the search is www.scholarshipportal.com.

Accepted students may ask the organizers for documents they need to support their scholarship application(s).
