Doctoral Scholarships

Ph.D Scholarship Program is an offer for graduates – scholarship programs implemented by the EEF grant holders.

The Program offers three scholarship opportunities and is funded by the Polish-American Freedom Foundation and National Bank of Poland Foundation.

PhD  Scholarship Program is a unique form of assistance targeted at these Bridge Scholarship holders who are interested in continuing studies at the doctoral level. It aims primarily to make it easier for ambitious young people from small towns and rural areas to take doctoral studies and pursue education. But we hope that it will also help mobilize them and make them reach higher and thereby contribute to shaping the young generation of scholars.

The Polish-American Freedom Foundation as well as PAFF/Stocznia scholarship amounts to PLN 18,000 per annum and is paid out in monthly installments.The amount of the National Bank of Poland Foundation scholarship is PLN 25, 000 per annum and is paid in 10 installments from October to July.  In the first semester the scholarship is paid on the basis of the qualification procedure, and further – a positive opinion of a promoter on the progress in developing the concept or preparation of doctoral thesis, and also GPA obtained during the I semester (not less than 4.0).
