Learn Croatian In Croatia – Scholarship Applications Now Open

The State Office for Croats Abroad is once again offering scholarships for Croatian language learning in Croatia.

The deadline for applications is 1 July 2019.

More details on the website, on email: tecaj-hrvatskog-jezika@hrvatiizvanrh.hr or call +385 (0)1/6444-683 between 10.00 – 15.00 on week days.


Applications for scholarships for Croatian language learning in Croatia in the 2019/20 academic year are now open, the State Office for Croats Abroad announced on its website.

The aim of the scholarships is to help further a better understanding of the Croatian language and culture, as well as to foster the partnership with Croatians abroad and their descendants. It is hoped that the programme will help provide a stimulant for Croatians abroad and their descendants to return to Croatia.

Members of the Croatian People, their spouses, as well as friends of the Croatian people and the Republic of Croatia who nurture Croatian identity and promote Croatian cultural unity, can submit an application for the scholarship, which is done exclusively electronically/online.

Applicants must be aged over 18, completed at least secondary school and with residence outside Croatia or those who have been residing in Croatia for no more than three years.

Scholarship recipients can study in Zagreb, Split, Rijeka or Osijek. The scholarship covers cost of the course, plus subventions for two meals a day and part of accommodation costs.

Only electronic applications will be accepted. The application form can be found on the link here.

Multi-lingual instructions as to how to fill in and submit applications can be found in this PDF document downloaded from the above website.


  1. Ako budu učili po Divljakušinom programu, bojim se da će prije naučiti srpski. Da ih “ceo svet razume.”

    • Totally agree, Urbani Desničar, the current Education minister in Croatia, Divjak, has nothing to offer Croatians in the field of Croatian language and culture. She is a disgrace! She would rather dilute Croatian culture and push it into the background behind Serb one. 🙁
