4) Student scholarhips for regular semester activities shall be awarded for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 10 months. Shorter stays shall only be permitted for students working on their theses or dissertations.
5) CEEPUS II scholarships may also be awarded to students enrolled at an eligible CEEPUS II university for whom special arrangements for studying have been made outside a CEEPUS II network (Freemovers).
6) CEEPUS II scholarships are "comprehensive" scholarships, i.e. intended to cover the cost of living, expenses for laboratory fees according to general usage in the host country where applicable, housing and basic medical insurance where applicable during the stay in a host country. CEEPUS II scholarships shall be linked to the cost of living in the respective host country and shall be safeguarded against inflation.
7) Since there is no transfer of funds, CEEPUS II scholarships shall be paid by the host country, with the exception of travel allowances, which shall be paid by the country of origin where applicable.
8) The CEEPUS II currency is defined as "one scholarship month". All Contracting Parties shall announce their quotas for the following academic year in yearly intervals. The minimum requirement shall be 100 scholarship months.

CEEPUS II: Priloga I
Pogodbenice razvijajo in spodbujajo srednjeevropsko univerzitetno mrežo, ki jo sestavljajo razne posamezne mreže. Ta mreža je namenjena spodbujanju akademske mobilnosti, predvsem mobilnosti študentov v srednji Evropi, in spodbujanju sodelovanja srednjeevropskih univerz ter razvijanju skupnih programov, če je le mogoče za pridobitev dveh ali skupne diplome.
Vse akcije CEEPUS II iz točke 1 potekajo v univerzitetnih mrežah CEEPUS II, razen za prejemnike prostih štipendij.
CEEPUS II daje prednost mrežam za sodelovanje v skupnih programih ali pri razvijanju novih. Skupni odbor ministrov bo glede tega spremljal napredek, dosežen pri prenovi visokega šolstva v skladu z bolonjskimi procesi, in bo temu prilagodil prednostne naloge CEEPUS II.
1. akcija: ustanovitev in delovanje mreže srednjeevropskih univerz
1) Mrežo sestavljajo vsaj tri univerze, od katerih dve pripadata različnim pogodbenicam, čeprav lahko mreže, specializirane za razvoj skupnih programov, v prvi fazi, ki jo opredeli Skupni odbor ministrov, sestavljata samo dve univerzi različnih pogodbenic. Prednost pa se daje mrežam, sestavljenim iz več kot dveh univerz različnih pogodbenic.
2) Univerza, ki želi sodelovati v mreži CEEPUS II, mora izpolnjevati te pogoje:
a) obdobja študija ali usposabljanja, končana na eni od sodelujočih univerz ali drugi organizaciji gostiteljice, se na partnerskih univerzah v celoti priznavajo;
b) predvideti je treba medsebojno priznavanje v mreži. Uporablja se ECTS (evropski prenosni kreditni sistem) ali z njim primerljiv sistem. Če študenti pripravljajo nalogo ali disertacijo, se namesto tega lahko upoštevata izjavi mentorjev domače univerze in univerze gostiteljice, da je študijsko obdobje v tujini namenjeno njeni izdelavi;
c) da se olajša akademska mobilnost, so predmeti in/ali predavanja v okviru CEEPUS II tudi v angleškem, nemškem ali francoskem jeziku. Pogodbenice soglašajo, da bodo spodbujale strokovne jezikovne tečaje s podeljevanjem mesečnih štipendij za pripravljalne tečaje strokovnega angleškega, nemškega ali francoskega jezika, ki jih ponujajo posamezne mreže.
Če je to izvedljivo, se lahko ponudijo spremljajoči jezikovni tečaji v jeziku države gostiteljice;
d) študent, ki študira v okviru CEEPUS II, je oproščen plačila vsakršne vpisnine ali šolnine.
2. akcija: intenzivni tečaji
Pogodbenice soglašajo, da bodo spodbujale intenzivne tečaje:
1) če bo namen teh tečajev pritegniti udeležence iz čim več pogodbenic skupaj z državo gostiteljico. Udeleženci so opredeljeni kot študenti in/ali predavatelji, gostujoči profesorji in učno osebje;
2) če se bodo ti tečaji uvrščali med
poletne šole, ki trajajo vsaj 10 delovnih dni in so namenjene posebni temi, če bodo kreditno ovrednotene;
intenzivne tečaje usposabljanja za mlade učitelje, ki trajajo vsaj 10 delovnih dni.
3) Kongresi in podobne prireditve so izrecno izključeni.
3. akcija: študentske ekskurzije
Pogodbenice soglašajo, da bodo spodbujale študentske ekskurzije, če bodo kreditno ovrednotene in
1) bodo imele znanstveni/umetniški namen ter uporabljale opremo države gostiteljice ali
2) bodo imele znanstveni/umetniški namen in bodo skupno organizirane.
4. akcija: program štipendiranja mobilnosti študentov in učiteljev
1) Pogodbenice soglašajo, da bodo posamezne štipendije podeljevale študentom, ki sodelujejo pri dejavnostih CEEPUS II, opisanih v akcijah 1–3.
2) Štipendije se podeljujejo predavateljem, gostujočim profesorjem in učnemu osebju, če prispevajo k nadnacionalnemu meduniverzitetnemu sodelovanju in/ali ustreznemu usposabljanju. Predavatelji, gostujoči profesorji in učno osebje morajo na univerzi gostiteljici poučevati vsaj šest učnih ur tedensko.
3) Štipendije se podeljujejo tudi študentom in diplomantom za praktično usposabljanje v podjetju, raziskovalni organizaciji ali vladni organizaciji v državi gostiteljici, če je izdelan jasen in strukturiran predlog.
4) Študentske štipendije za redne semestrske dejavnosti se podeljujejo najmanj za tri in največ deset mesecev. Krajša bivanja se dovolijo samo študentom, ki pripravljajo naloge ali disertacije.
5) Štipendije CEEPUS II se lahko podeljujejo tudi študentom, vpisanim na univerzi, ki izpolnjuje pogoje za program CEEPUS II, za katere pa so bili glede študija sprejeti posebni dogovori zunaj mreže CEEPUS II (prejemniki prostih štipendij).
6) Štipendije CEEPUS II so »vsezajemajoče« štipendije, saj so namenjene za poravnavanje življenjskih stroškov, po potrebi laboratorijskih stroškov v skladu s splošno prakso v državi gostiteljici, stroškov namestitve in po potrebi osnovnega zdravstvenega zavarovanja med bivanjem v državi gostiteljici. Štipendije CEEPUS II so odvisne od življenjskih stroškov v posamezni državi gostiteljici in se povečujejo z inflacijo.
7) Ker se sredstva ne prenašajo, štipendije CEEPUS II plačuje država gostiteljica, razen potnih stroškov, ki jih lahko plača domača država.
8) Valuta CEEPUS II je opredeljena kot »en mesec štipendiranja«. Vse pogodbenice vsako leto napovejo svoje kvote za naslednje študijsko leto. Zahteva je najmanj100 mesečnih štipendij.
9) CEEPUS II ne poravnava niti režijskih niti organizacijskih stroškov.
