Tuition and scholarships

The annual tuition fee for IB students at Nový PORG grammar school who join the programme in their seventh year is:

  • 247 000,- CZK

Tuition includes all materials, textbooks, and recreational activities.

Scholarship

The primary interest of the PORG public service company is to provide the opportunity for gifted pupils to study regardless of their parents’ financial situation. The school has created a scholarship fund that grants scholarships for talented students from families whose financial situation does not allow them to pay full tuition fees. The Martin and Lenka Roman Foundation is one of the contributors to this fund. The scholarship is allocated on the basis of an individual assessment of the application; the study fund takes into account the family's income and financial standing. The scholarship is anonymous and discreet. For the future school year, the annual income of the family is set at CZK 1,000,000, namely the sum of the tax base of both parents, respectively, employed persons living with a child in a common household. Should more than one child from a family attend PORG, the scholarship may be awarded at even higher joint income earnings. The scholarship fund grants scholarships of up to 90% of tuition fees. If your financial situation gets worse during your studies, your scholarship may be granted from the date of such change. Continuing your studies in this case will not depend on your current financial situation. The scholarship can be applied for directly through the application form.

In applying for a scholarship, PORG will require, among other things:

  • a completed scholarship application application for the scholarship
  • if the parents are divorced, a copy of the court's decision on the property settlement of the spouses
  • a copy of the tax returns of both parents or other gainfully employed persons living with the child in a common household

The study fund may request further documentation and information that it considers necessary for its decision.
