Hello, dear people. During our travels and studies me and my friends realised, that we have lots of “life hacks” to share. Therefore we would like to establish sharing link platform, where you can find useful tips or links in your journey through life. This can be alternative source for going a bit out of your comfort zone or spice your life. We will collect links about scholarsips, internship/job offers, volunteering, alternative styles in travelling or just useful things that we found on the way. Some of the websites are for free, sometimes you need to pay membersip. Also there are some opportunities just for particular countries, f.e. European Union members. Remember that you can google key word for your country and search in your own language. We would like to thank all of our friends, who inspire us and helped to collect all that information. Please feel free to share this file and contact us if you have some new and useful information on mail (mydlova.michaela@gmail.com).

TIP FOR STUDENTS: The best time for travelling is during the studies, so you dont need to postpone your “dream travelling around the world”. You have many opportunities to go abroad through student scholarships or internships while you are in your home university. Also visa process as a student is much more easier, because your host university will help you with this.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND EXCHANGES PROGRAMMES

Searching for a scholarship – when you searching for scholarship abroad, first of all, contact your university international office. They can give you lots of information about partner universities/schools or useful contacts where to go next. Another option is to check the website of the embassy of the country you want to go, because sometimes they promote scholarships. For example China have all different scholarship on one website so it can be found on Chinese embassy website for individual countries. Remember that you can Google opportunities when you put yur nationality and desired country (f.e. scholarships for Czech in Costa Rica). Be aware, that you need to search for scholarship in advance – sometimes they require English exams or there is application deadline.
