Government scholarships are provided for all levels of higher education at public universities in the Slovak Republic. The conditions for awarding and providing government scholarships are regulated by Act no. 392/2015 Coll. on Development Cooperation and on Amendments to Certain Acts and Decree of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic no. 50/2016, which lays down the details of the provision of government scholarships.

Slovak government scholarships, under OECD-defined conditions for conducting official development assistance, include awarding the Slovak government scholarship to persons with Slovaks Living Abroad status. Award of such scholarships has become a part of state policy supporting Slovaks Living Abroad, which has developed gradually over time, with the adoption of Act No. 474/2006 Coll. on Slovaks Living Abroad and on amendment of certain acts and by the establishment of the Office for Slovaks Living Abroad.
