Support, Scholarships & Credit Points
The IUC is unfortunately not in a position to provide any scholarships, since there are no financial
means available to set up appropriate grant programmes, but there are two IUC related funds
offering support especially for IUC courses:
The Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports provides graduate students and
professors from Croatia with four scholarships per course which cover travel expenses and half
board accommodation. Applications may be submitted by course directors or interested candidates
directly to the IUC Secretariat. For application form visit http://iuc.hr/croatian-ministry.php.
Furthermore, preferential attention should be paid to national funding institutions and foundations
often providing scholarships or grants for postgraduate courses, e.g. DAAD (German Academic
Exchange Service) offers stipends and support of new courses. For information visit
http://daad.de/stipends. Students from Austria have a look on www.grants.at.
Course and conference participants are kindly requested to approach their course directors,
the academic exchanges service at their home universities and of course the internet for further
inquiries.
A certificate is awarded to each student who attends a full course and satisfactorily completes a
written contribution in the field of study for the course. Course directors decide in accordance with
the university and the respective graduate and research training program, how many ECTS points
are awarded. ECTS points will be measured by the necessary workload of the student to achieve
defined learning outcomes and competences. The workload includes time the student needs for
lectures, seminars, independent work, reading, learning, writing papers and exam.

Foundation & History
The Inter-University Centre has lived a rich life so far and has taken great pride in serving as a
venue for scholarly cooperation. It is all set to continue its mission.
The idea of the IUC developed in response to urgent affairs; there was a cold war going on.
Concerned scholars saw the importance of creating new opportunities for contact and exchange of
knowledge and ideas across division lines. Would it be possible to create strong arenas where
scholars from various parts of the world could meet to pursue important scientific issues in a
diplomatic and peace-generating way? There was a wish to strengthen the role of scientists in
bridge-building between nations and cultures, ideologies and political systems, rather than
continuing the troublesome schisms that the world had become so used to over the decades
following World War II.
Plans for a United Nations University were being discussed in the late 1960’s. In a meeting of
university leaders in Montreal in 1970, the Rector of the University of Zagreb at that time, Ivan
Supek, proposed an alternative or a supplement that won wide support. He suggested to build an
Inter-University Centre that is fully in the hands of the cooperating scholars and universities
themselves – an institution free of government control. Luckily, the city of Dubrovnik had offered
Supek a building that could serve as a home for the kind of international centre he envisioned.
It must be remembered that Yugoslavia held a unique position at the time; Yugoslavia under Tito
was non-aligned. It had the potential to provide conditions for contacts that could not otherwise be
achieved. Dubrovnik, with its rich history, culture, its beauty and friendly atmosphere, certainly
appeared as an ideal site, and an Inter-University Centre located here could also serve as a
breathing-hole between East and West. For example, scholars from Eastern Europe were allowed
to travel to Dubrovnik, whilst to a large extent countries in the West were beyond reach. So, a
small group of individuals representing a handful of universities internationally were invited to
come to Dubrovnik to consider Supek’s idea.
The decision was made: The Inter-University Centre was to become reality, and work was started
to establish a viable organization and a sound basis for effective operation.
The centre could not have been established and could not have entered into its successful life,
without the outstanding generosity of the Univ Zagreb, while vice versa IUC has given much in
return by connecting young scholars from Croatia and its broader region to active and generous
international networks of scholars.
The Inter-University Centre soon became a very attractive venue
for academic exchange. From the few universities represented by
the founders, the number of universities formally associated with
the IUC grew to more than 250 before the outbreak of the wars in
1991. Following the wars the number of member universities has
declined to approximately 170. Now the level of programme
activities in courses and conferences remains as high as ever, and
IUC Dubrovnik in competition with other actors on the international scholarly arena provides a whole series of extensive
programmes to promote study abroad and to globalize higher
education. Scholars, students and teachers keep coming; they are
happy to be in Dubrovnik and they are usually eager to come
back for new IUC events.

The IUC is structured as a consortium of universities and other scientific institutions that form the
centre's policies and objectives. Each Member institution delegates one representative to the
IUC Council, which is the policy-making and the highest governing body of the IUC. Council is
responsible for the Constitution of the Centre, admission of new Members, establishment of
fields of study and academic cooperation, budgetary matters, election of the Executive Committee and appointment of the Director General. It is chaired by Chair of the Council.
Executive Committee acts on behalf of the Council between Council meetings on the formation
of the annual academic programme, acceptance of budget and financial reports and agreements
and contracts with other institutions. It is chaired by Chair of the Executive Committee.
Director General is responsible for the functioning of the Centre, its academic programmes, and
finances.
IUC Association provides a legal basis for the functioning of the Centre, for the personnel, premises, equipment and required funding. It was registered in November 1994 in order to provide the
continuity of the institution in the new legal settings of the Republic of Croatia. It is chaired by
President of the Association.
-All governing functions at the IUC are performed by dedicated members on voluntary basis——————————————————————————————————
