Think-Tank IDEA Launches Idea Talks

22 November, 2021

David Klimeš, anchor of the first part of a new series of interviews, Idea Talks, chats with Daniel Münich about financial support for students in higher education in Czech.

International comparisons show a low total amount of financial support for students in Czech. A large share of that support provided means that support for the most socio-economically needy and prospective students is very low.

The amount of funding made available through social scholarships and the breadth of the pool of students eligible for them is not regularly increased in response to inflation or students' rising living costs. Still, it is revised in connection with ad hoc raises made to the minimum wage and living wages.
