Scholarship programs

Scholarship programs are an important foreign policy instrument of our country. They allow foreign students to obtain education and skills which are often unavailable in their places of origin. Furthermore, thanks to their stay in Poland, such people are exposed to the local culture, language and customs. They can also make acquaintances that will benefit them in their future careers. As a result the scholarship policy contributes to the creation of socio-economic potential in the partner countries.

Currently, two scholarship programs are being financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and implemented by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education:

Stefan Banach Scholarship Program

The programme aims to support socio-economic development of developing countries in Europe and Central Asia by raising the level of education and vocational qualifications of their citizens. When recruiting candidates, priority will be given to the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) and Central Asian countries (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan). The programme provides an opportunity to undertake second-cycle studies at the universities which are supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in the following fields: engineering and technology, agriculture, exact sciences, and natural sciences. Additionally, the citizens of Belarus have the possibility to undertake first-cycle studies at all faculties run by schools which are supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, except for philological studies.

Ignacy Łukasiewicz Scholarship Programme

The programme aims to support socio-economic development in developing countries (except for European and Central Asian countries) by raising the level of education and vocational qualifications of their citizens. When recruiting candidates, priority will be given to the following countries: Angola, Ethiopia, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Colombia, Lebanon, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Palestine, Peru, South Africa, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Vietnam. The programme offers students an opportunity to undertake second-cycle studies at universities supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in the following fields: engineering and technology, agriculture, exact sciences, and natural sciences.

The Stefan Banach Scholarship Programme, the Ignacy Łukasiewicz Scholarship Programme and others scholarship programmes are one of three flagship initiatives of Polish development cooperation defined in the Multiannual Development Cooperation Programme 2016-2020.
