This highly competitive scholarship award requires a written application, essay and may include an oral interview. Oral and written proficiency in English is required.
Professor Michael Seng serves as an academic advisor throughout the fall semester. The selected student will meet with Professor Seng prior to registering for classes and throughout the semester as needed.
Dates & Details
Fall Semester commences the third week of August and concludes the third week of December.
Students are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements and obtaining a passport and required visa. In the past students have arrived in Chicago early to mid-August in order to get acclimated prior to the start of classes. Many students are housed by host families that are friends of the law school. Each month the student receives a stipend to help defray food and other living expenses.
This program is underwritten by The John Marshall Law School, Masaryk University Faculty of Law, and generous donations from individual supporters.
