You can apply for a full scholarship or a reduced fee option of 60 to 220 EUR.

You can apply for a full scholarship or a reduced fee option of 60 to 220 EUR. 

The Discover Summer Academy is a non-profit activity, but there is a fee. In addition to accommodation, food and supplies, we also have to pay for publicity, administration and the costs of the organizing team, including their preparations and travel. None of the organizers are paid for their work. When we divided all these costs by the expected number of participants, we came up with 290 euros.

Don’t be discouraged from applying if you are worried about not being able to pay any of the possible fees. Registration is free of charge and we have set aside funds for fee reductions where justified.We offer a full scholarship to male and female students as well as the possibility of reduced fees ranging from €60 to €220. Please state the reason why you are requesting a reduction in the participation fee. You should include information about the following

  • Your family situation
  • Employment of your parents/legal guardians (not including income)
  • Unexpected expenses

Although this may seem like an invasion of your privacy, this information is essential for us to fairly award scholarships; of course, no one will know about these reasons and they will be removed as soon as they have been evaluated. Please note that your application may not be successful, but we make every effort to accommodate anyone who would be prevented from participating in Discover by the amount of the application fee and who applies for a scholarship in a timely manner, no later than May 1. However, if you miss this date and still wish to apply for the scholarship, please email

Only accepted applications will be asked to pay the fee they selected upon filing an application. You can ask for a scholarship application even after paying your fee. However, if we do not receive your payment or your payment transfer request before the deadline, your application will be declined and you will not be able to apply again.

Capacity of Discover Summer Academy International Session

Session #D
6th of August – 13th of August
Sv. Jan pod Skalou CZ

full capacity,
Applications closed.

Selection process

All applicants fill in the application, which has three parts. In the first you choose your preferred courses, in the second one you answer 3 simple questions and in the last, you fill in personal data and your fee selection.

The data from the evaluated part are decisive for you being accepted to the Discover Summer Academy. While this evaluation takes place separately within the tours – i.e. registered for Session C is not compared with the application for Turnus D, it will happen if you are transferred to a different session. Of course, that is not possible for international students.

Our great evaluators only look at how you answered these three questions in the evaluated part, not how your answers were structured or what position you took. We want to see sincere interest, ideas and the ability to express your thoughts.


  • You have answered the asked question in full and explained your answers.
  • You have shown a sufficient level of English (B2 or more)

Exactly. Just meet these conditions and you are almost certain to participate in Summer Academy Discover. Don’t forget – capacities are limited and applying later may mean that the session will be full. 

In the middle of the month after the end of the application round, you will receive a Decision on your application, which will be available on the Log-in portal and in the sent e-mail, which will be supplemented with payment information and future instructions in case of your success.


The application may be unsuccessful for two reasons – it did not meet the evaluation criterium, the capacity of the primary tour is not sufficient or both. In any case, the alternative for international students is the following (for Czech and Slovak applicants there are more options available and they can find them in the Czech or Slovak version of the webpage):


The secondary session is to serve as an alternative that you will be able to attend if you are unable to attend your primary session. The secondary session should have a larger capacity at the time of your registration. You can transfer to the secondary session automatically or manually, even if you are not selected for the primary session and the secondary session suits you better for various reasons. In both cases, the application will be processed together with the other applications for the secondary session in the month in which the change occurs (automatically in the month of application, manually at any time since the application was submitted).

If your secondary application is unsuccessful, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list of your secondary session.


If the application sent from February to April was unsuccessful (no matter the reason), the applicant can apply again during the next registration deadlines (the applicant can apply in case of unfavourable circumstances up to 4 times). Please note that previously unsuccessful applications will not affect your further applications.

Filling in the application


  • The questions are designed to help us learn more about your motivation for applying to Discover and to hear your opinion on the statements you selected. Answer honestly and give your thoughts a clear structure and concise content. You have a minimum word limit of 95 words and a maximum word limit of 200 words for each question. 
  • If you’re not sure how to answer a question, we encourage you to consult our website. You can also ask for help from friends who have already taken part in Discover, or from us – just email us at


  • What motivated you to apply for the Discover 2023 Summer Academy?
  • Why did you choose these four courses?
  • Choose one of the following statements, think about it, try to form an opinion about it and explain why you chose it. Note: You don’t have to agree with the statement, you can either oppose it or take a neutral position.
  1. Technology does not have a positive impact on the teaching process.
  2. Student civic engagement should be publicly encouraged. 
  3. Increasing diversity and inclusion does not lead to improvements in society. 
  4. Digital literacy is the skill of the future.
