Applicants must be permanent residents of Slovakia studying law, economics, information technologies, technical fields, natural sciences and medicine. The stipend can be up to Sk150,000, granted for a period of three weeks up to nine months. The first round of applications will select candidates for projects in the summer semester 2007/2008.
