The Charles University Grant Agency (GA UK) was founded in 1993 and is the university’s internal grant agency. Currently, only students enrolled at Charles University and studying in doctoral or masters programs may submit new grant applications or applications for continuing support.
The process of grant allocation for each new round of the grant competition begins at the latest at the beginning of each academic year, announced by the rector.
Applications for new projects are submitted through the GA UK app from October to November.
Specific deadlines for submitting applications are set annually by the rector and are published on Charles University’s webpages as well as the GA UK website.
Applications are submitted to the rectorate collectively on behalf of individual faculties within the timeframes listed online.
There are binding faculty deadlines for submitting applications to individual faculties, which are generally a number of days earlier than the deadlines for the rectorate (information about faculty deadlines is published by each faculty, as set by faculty deans).
