The social engagement scholarship may be awarded in consideration of charity or school activities, or generally for positive community engagement in society.

Scholarships typically cover between 50-80% of the total cost of study.
Applicants who are working professionals have the opportunity to benefit from our Industry Network Scholarship. If a company agrees to pay for their employee's studies and are already part of our Industry Network, or if they would like to join it, then they would save 20% on the tuition fees.
"Thanks to the scholarship I can still get a British degree, which would otherwise be impossible for me, because I can't afford the studies in UK. With the scholarship I was given an opportunity to study at Prague College. I believe that life is not only about taking, but also giving and so I was happy to give a hand when it was needed. I helped with the Graduation Ceremony, Job Fair or the Christmas and Welcome party. In the Leadership Association it depends on the individual how he contributes to the community, but I was trying to be a person with whom others like to work and can rely on."
In some countries government funding is available to support students studying abroad. Students from Norway, Sweden, Belgium and others, have all successfully gained funding from their home countries to be able to support their studies at Prague College.
If you think you may be eligible for funding from your home country do not hesitate to ask for our advice and support regarding any documentation you might need.
