Contribution from the fund-raising campaign

This is a contribution from a public fund-raising campaign, to which students, employees, alumni and other supporters of UP contribute. You can apply for a contribution using the Žádost o finanční podporu z veřejné sbírky form, which you can find after logging in to the Electronic forms system in UP Portal. Then send it to email@example.com. Funding will be granted according to the current amount of funds in the fundraising account and the date of receipt of your request, but in any case we will try to help you. The only condition for submitting an application is Ukrainian citizenship.
