Croatian Ministry of Science and Education
For more than a decade the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education has been supporting the work and functioning of the IUC. This support was established in 2002 and through this time it covered scholarships, operational expenses and equipment. At the moment Croatian Ministry grant is covering the following:
Scholarships for Croatian students and professors participating in IUC international programmes. Scholarships are covering travel expenses in Croatia (mostly return plane ticket) and half board accommodation during the stay in Dubrovnik. IUC is additionally supporting the grantees by exempting them from participation fees. Course directors are those who are approving these scholarships and selecting the grantees. For more information about requirements and procedure please go to the page for Croatian Ministry scholarship. In 2011 IUC was able to secure 4 grants per course from the Ministry support.
Additional support is provided for the operational expenses of the IUC Secretariat.
For the Academic Year 2019/2020 this support has been achieved in partnership with the University of Rijeka. This cooperation implies the improvement of internationalisation at the University of Rijeka through the creation of an integrated model of transnational and multidisciplinary scientific cooperation while it remains available to members of all Croatian educational and scientific institutions, attending the IUC programmes. According to the agreement between IUC and University of Rijeka, funds are allocated to the IUC account and scholarships are distributed by course directors, as previous years.
