Doctoral student’s performance stipend
On 25 May 2018, the senate approved amendments to the procedure for applying for, granting and payment of stipends and study allowances, whereby the procedure for granting and payment of the doctoral student’s performance stipend was established.
The doctoral students’ performance stipend will be implemented as of 1 September 2018. The amount of the stipend in 2018 is 400 euros per month. By paying the stipend, the university wants to support the completion of doctoral studies within the standard period of study, thereby improving the effectiveness of doctoral studies. The efficiency and need for the stipend will be reviewed once a year.
A doctoral student is entitled to the doctoral student’s performance stipend for up to 48 months, provided that the student
... studies full time and according to the progress review, has performed 100% of the curriculum;
... is not on academic leave;
... has not exceeded the standard period of study, i.e. it is not the student’s extension year;
... is a first-year doctoral student and has not had progress review yet;
... does not perform such work in the university on the basis of an employment contract that supports their doctoral study (this requirement does not apply to first-year doctoral students who have not had progress review yet).
In September 2018, performance stipend is granted as follows:
... In the autumn semester of the 2018/2019 academic year, the doctoral student’s performance stipend will be granted by 30 September 2018;
... for doctoral students, who have been matriculated as 1-year students from 1 December 2017 - 3 September 2018, the stipend will be granted for six months;
... for doctoral students, who have completed 100% of the curriculum and who meet the stipend criteria, the stipend will be granted for twelve months.
The decisions on granting the stipends will be made by progress review committees.
