The PRIGO Language and Humanities Grammar School in Ostrava provides free education with the possibility of obtaining a scholarship. It provides 6-year and 4-year study programmes oriented towards those interested in foreign languages or humanities. Among other things, applicants are offered to pass the International Baccalaureate (IB) with extensive instruction of foreign languages and some subjects taught in a foreign language. Find out more information here.
PRIGO cooperates with more than twenty foreign schools. You can find more information about the international cooperation here.
With regard to making education available and the membership in the PRIGO Group, the tuition fees are covered from the scholarship fund for all students without serious disciplinary offences who initiate their studies in the 2020/2021 school year based on the headmistress’ decision. Studying without tuition fees is guaranteed for the entire study period, even though standard tuition fees are around CZK 9 900 per month.
The PRIGO Scholarship Fund also allows the provision of social and merit scholarships and the financing of tuition fees for individual students or alternatively the reduction or exemption of tuition fees for a particular field or a whole school within the PRIGO Group. It is also used to support project and civic activities of PRIGO pupils, students and teachers based on approved projects. The PRIGO Scholarship Fund also allows third parties outside the PRIGO Group to receive grant funds if the tender terms and conditions are met. The granting of scholarship funds is decided by the PRIGO Strategic Board (PSB).
All new students enrolled in our six-year grammar school in the school year 2021/2022 as well as those students who will start the IB Diploma Programme (International Baccalaureate) will receive iPads, and so will their teachers. In the upcoming years, all our other pupils, students, and teachers at PRIGO schools will be gradually equipped in like manner. All devices will always be new, it will be possible to use it for school, extracurricular and personal needs, and after successful completion of the study, it will be left to the personal ownership of the pupil or student for a symbolic or residual price. From September 2021, a new system of teaching individual subjects based on work with information and communication technologies will be implemented at PRIGO schools, too.
The PRIGO Language and Humanities Grammar School provides merit and project scholarships. The merit scholarship is awarded to any pupil or student without serious disciplinary offences, in pursuance of the Scholarship Rules. The usual amount of merit scholarship ranges between CZK 500 – 2 000 per month. The project scholarship is awarded to any pupil or student who defends their scientific or another project and commits themselves to solve it. The usual project support is between CZK 10 000 and CZK 50 000 a year.
Interesting scholarships are also awarded for successfully representing our Grammar School or when passing the school-leaving exam with honours.
