Information on scholarships for studying in Slovenia

Slovenia offers scholarships for 27 months to Israeli university/college students or graduates and Ph.D. applicants in the academic year 2018-19. The length of scholarship usually ranges from 3 to 10 months per recipient. The age limit of the applicants for study stays is 26 years and 30 years for research visit.

Decisions on admission to research or study stays are taken by the institutions of higher education. Applicants are therefore obliged to contact the selected university directly and request a Letter of Acceptance from the relevant department. Applicants are requested to point out to the selected university that they are applying for a scholarship award under the bilateral agreement.
