  • SOCIAL SCHOLARSHIP

    The social scholarship is granted to full-time and part-time students, regardless of age, who study at BA level (first-degree studies) and MA (second-degree studies) and are in a difficult financial situation. 

    The maximum amount of income, per family member per month that entitles a student to a social scholarship is PLN 1051. 

    A student, who is in an extremely difficult financial situation, may also receive a social scholarship in the increased amount, among others, when he is forced to rent a room in a student home or flat, because access from the place of permanent residence to the university, prevents, or significantly hinders, studying. 

  • RECTOR'S SCHOLARSHIP

    This type of scholarship may be awarded to students after completing their first year of study. 

    The condition for obtaining the Rector’s Scholarship is to obtain a high average grade for the last year of study, and/or for scientific, artistic, or high sports results in an international or national competition. 

    A Rector’s Scholarship may also be applied for by a first-year student of the first-cycle, or uniform Master’s studies, who has been admitted to these studies in the year of passing the Matura exam; an Olympics winner, a finalist of the subject Olympics, or a medal winner in sporting competition, all contributing towards the title of ‘Polish Champion in Sport’. 

    First-year students of the second-cycle studies may apply for the Rector’s Scholarship, also on the basis of the results from the last year of undergraduate studies. If you have previously studied at a university, other than Vistula, you must attach to the application a certificate about the average grade from that previous university. 

     

    Rector’s Scholarship Applications for the best students are submitted twice a year at the beginning of each semester, according to the schedule. Rector’s scholarships are awarded twice per academic year, per semester, for up to 5 months. 

    The student is required to submit a separate application with complete documentation for each semester. The rector’s scholarship may receive a maximum of 10% of the best students in a given field of study, but  

    cannot be granted to a student who, regardless of average grade and achievements: 

    • repeats the year/semester of studies,
    • obtained a conditional entry or conditional credit for the next semester/year,
    • resumed studies after being struck off the list of students, due to failing a semester or year.
  • THE MINISTER'S SCHOLARSHIP FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS

    The Minister’s scholarship may be awarded to students for outstanding scientific or artistic achievements related to their studies, or outstanding achievements in sport. 

    Detailed rules for granting the Minister’s Scholarship to students for outstanding achievements, can be found on the website: https://www.nauka.gov.pl/stypendia–ministra/, which also details the procedure for submitting applications for the ministerial scholarship by universities. 

    Minister’s scholarships are awarded to students upon the application of the university’s Rector, approved by the Faculty Council. 

    After receiving an opinion, the Rector forwards the student’s application to the ministry, together with documents confirming the achievement of outstanding achievements. In cases whereby a student has presented other achievements, outside the catalogue of outstanding successes, or unrelated to studies, the Rector’s opinion may be negative. The university rector only provides the Minister with positive opinions. 

    Applications for Minister’s Scholarships are forwarded by the Rector by October the 15th. 

    All the information needed to submit an application can be found on the website of the ministry: https://www.gov.pl/web/nauka/informacja…

  • SCHOLARSHIP FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

    A scholarship for people with disabilities may be granted to a student for a disability, confirmed by a decision of a competent authority on light, moderate, or severe disability, or an equivalent decision. 

    The student should enclose with his application, a valid certificate, entitling him to a scholarship. Scholarships for people with disabilities may cover a period of up to 10 months, but at the same time, not longer than the validity of the decision. 

    Attention! If the application for a scholarship for people with disabilities in the USOSweb system is inactive, it means that you did not report your disability during the recruitment process. To unblock it, please inform the Ombudsman’s staff concerned  with disabilities, as to   the degree of disability, confirming it with an appropriate certificate. If your disability certificate has expired, and you have managed to obtain a new one, please report this change to the Ombudsman.

  • INCENTIVE

    A student who is temporarily in a difficult financial situation can receive help. The scholarship event may be, e.g. death or serious illness of a family member, natural disasters (e.g. fires, floods) or other random events.
    An application for a grant can be submitted up to twice in an academic year. A student cannot receive a grant twice for the same event.
    Undocumented or insufficiently documented applications will not be the basis used for granting the grant. The student must document the event (e.g. medical certificate, a certificate from a social assistance centre, court or police decision, invoices or bills confirming expenses incurred as a result of the situation). In justified cases, the university may ask for certificates regarding the amount of net income in the family.
    An application for assistance should be submitted immediately, but no later than 90 days from the date of the event.
    The amount of the grant applicable in a given academic year is determined by the Rector, in consultation with the university body of student self-government.
    The incentive is paid once.

    Incentive:
    The decision to grant, or refuse to grant, material assistance, is issued in the form of a written administrative decision for collection at the Student Support Center.

    Every decision requires justification. Therefore, it is possible to appeal against the Rector’s decision within 14 days of its receipt.

    Important! Failure to collect the decision will result in the suspension of the payment of funds to the student’s account, as only its receipt is tantamount to acceptance of the administrative decision. After receiving the written decision, the student will immediately receive funds to his/her personal account, which he/she indicated in the application. The amount of benefit paid will be increased, in proportion to the number of months in which the student delayed receiving the decision.

    It should be remembered that an application may be considered negatively, despite correctly submitted documents. The scholarship decision awaiting a student is not an unambiguous award of a specific scholarship.
