COMPETITIONS FOR AWARDING SCHOLARSHIOS TO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
In accordance with its set priorities and because it supports the improvement of the quality of education in the municipalities of Presevo and Bujanovac, the Coordination Body’s Office announced in 2011, 2012 and 2013 the competitions for awarding student scholarships to the youth residing in the municipalities of Presevo and Bujanovac.
The aim of awarding the scholarship is to ensure the conditions for further education and training by providing financial support for the costs of studying for the bachelor studies. The above costs are primarily related to the costs of housing (private accommodation or accommodation in the dormitory), the costs of food, transportation, purchase of textbooks, exam costs and other costs incurred in connection with studying.
In accordance with the approved funds, the Coordination Body’s Office made it possible for the candidates from the Albanian community, who meet the requirements for applying, to attend a three-month course in Serbian, which lasts from the first stage of the selection process to the time of taking the qualification exam.
In addition to the formal requirements, the basic criterion for awarding the scholarship is the passing of a qualifying exam (entrance examination) for admission to the first year of undergraduate studies at the University of Novi Sad.

The students who have already enjoyed the right to some of the student scholarships from the budget of the Republic of Serbia aren’t eligible for receiving the scholarship from the Coordination Body’s Office, and if they, in the meantime, become eligible for another scholarship, they are required to opt for one of the scholarships awarded.
