The member states of CEEPUS that have signed an international agreement are: Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Kosovo (Prishtina University).
CEEPUS covers mobility grants for students and academic staff in this framework.
What does CEEPUS finance?
CEEPUS III scholarships are comprehensive grants which shall cover the cost of living, expenses for laboratory fees according to general practice in the host country, where applicable, as well as housing and basic medical insurance, where applicable, during the stay in a host country. CEEPUS III scholarships are commensurate with the cost of living in the respective host country and inflation‐adjusted.
With CEEPUS, there is no transfer of funds: instead there is an internal currency of "1 scholarship month". Scholarships are financed, with the exception of travel expenses, by the host country.
Travel expenses, may be financed voluntarily or by the institutions (of origin and host) when this is part of their institutional practices.
