As Glas Hrvatske writes on the 22nd of May, 2020, the Central State Office for Croats Outside the Republic of Croatia has announced a public call for scholarships for learning the Croatian language in the Republic of Croatia for the winter semester of the 2020/21 academic year.
The application for the aforementioned public call is to be submitted exclusively in electronic form using an e-application form by June the 17th, 2020.
The public call has been announced in order for would-be Croatian language learners to gain a better grasp of Croatian language, which is often referred to as a very difficult language to learn, get better acquainted with general Croatian culture and preserve the country’s national identity outside of its borders, as well as to promote unity and cooperation and the return of Croats who have emigrated abroad, as well as their descendants.
Who exactly can apply? Members of the Croatian people, their spouses as well as friends of the Croatian people and Croatia who would like to nurture the Croatian identity and promote the Croatian cultural community, from the age of 18 onwards.
Those individuals must have completed at least their high school education and they must reside outside of Croatia. Those who hold residence in the Republic of Croatia may also apply, but their residence in Croatia must not have lasted longer than three years as of the day of the publication of this public call.
As stated, applications are being received only electronically, using the e-application form available here. To emphasise once again, the deadline for applications is June the 17th, 2020.
All details for this Croatian language course and more are listed on the link placed above, as are the attached instructions.
In case of the need for additional information, candidates can send their inquiries to the e-mail address: [email protected].
