Possibilities for grants Foreign students can apply for grants at Slovene Human Resources and Scholarship Fund (http://www.sklad-kadri.si/en/) or European Union, e.g. within Marie Curie Actions (http://www.cordis.lu/fp6/mobility.htm).
We also recommend that students apply for accomodation in Dom podiplomcev Ljubljana (http://www.dompodiplomcev.si/kje_se_nahajamo_eng.html), which usually closed the application in the first half of September.
