VUSG—Joint/Multiple Degree Program

The Visegrad University Studies Grant—Joint/Multiple Degree Program (VUSG—JDP) is a pro­gram of the International Visegrad Fund estab­lished to pro­mote and sup­port the mobil­ity within and run­ning of out­stand­ing Joint-/Multiple-/Double-Degree Programs. All V4 coun­tries must be involved (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia) as part­ner orga­ni­za­tions within the con­sor­tium of uni­ver­si­ties. The grant is to be awarded to selected Higher Education Institutions’ depart­ments, schools or fac­ul­ties (HEI) and/or research centers/organizations that can doc­u­ment the ready cur­ricu­lum of such a pro­gram and con­firm its planned long-term enroll­ment in their cur­ricu­lum. Minimum two sub­se­quent enroll­ments of the pro­gram are required within the grant. Any pub­lic or pri­vate HEI and research center/organization world­wide is eli­gi­ble for the grant, pro­vided that the nature of the sub­mit­ted pro­posal is rel­e­vant to or related to the Visegrad Group coun­tries. The Program can be taught in any lan­guage. The sup­port within this grant may be given to pro­grams at Master’s and Doctoral level. The sup­ported sums depend on the scope and qual­ity of each project but are intended to be up to €200,000 per program.

The Program is expected to secure mobil­ity of stu­dents enrolled within the Program as follows:

  1. If involv­ing all V4 coun­tries and no other coun­try: in this case the Applicant Organization is HEI or research center/organization located in a V4 coun­try, the students/doctoral can­di­dates falling into sup­port within this Grant shall spent at least 1 semes­ter dur­ing the Program in each V4 country;
  2. If involv­ing all V4 coun­tries and one non-V4 coun­try: in this case the Applicant Organization is HEI or research center/organization located out­side V4, the students/doctoral can­di­dates falling into sup­port within this Grant shall spent at least two semes­ters dur­ing the Program at two dif­fer­ent V4 coun­tries at insti­tu­tions within the con­sor­tium and at least one semes­ter at Applicant Organization spec­i­fied in the appli­ca­tion form. Students com­ing from and mobil­ity within all V4 coun­tries is con­sid­ered advantage.
