The CEEPUS Program of multilateral regional co-operation within networks of universities aims to build up a Central European university network, consisting of numerous sub-networks, each comprising at least three institutions of higher education (two of which must be from different CEEPUS member states).
The CEEPUS II Agreement was signed in Zagreb by (in an alphabetical order): Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia/FYROM, Moldova, Monte Negro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia; Kosovo has the status of a co-operating country.
The CEEPUS Programme facilitates the exchange of scholarships for undergraduate students, who have completed two semesters of study, postgraduate students and university teachers. Each of the participating countries annually offers a certain number of scholarship months intended for the admission of foreign students and teachers, following the principle of reciprocity.
Even students whose home universities are not part of a suitable network may apply for the so called “free mover” CEEPUS scholarship.
The CEEPUS III Agreement was signed in 2010, taking effect on 1 May 2011 and following upon the CEEPUS II Agreement.
