Slovak Academic Information Agency – SAIA
SAIA, n. o. (Slovak Academic Information Agency) is a non-governmental non-profit organisation implementing programmes and providing services aimed at enhancement of civil society, and assisting in internationalisation of education and research in Slovakia since 1990.
SAIA was established in early 1990s at the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic. New conditions in the society naturally called for an independent information agency to guarantee access to information and provide advisory service on opportunities for study abroad. Such agency would also develop an open and transparent application system for distribution of scholarships offered to Slovakia by foreign governments and various non-profit organisations after the regime change.
SAIA manages a wide range of various programs and activities for both outgoing students, lecturers and researchers as well as academic mobilities for those students and academicians who would like to come to Slovakia. For details please see their web-page http://www.saia.sk/en
