Students from 17 developing countries (Angola, Chile, Ethiopia, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Palestine, Peru, South Africa, Senegal, Tanzania, and Vietnam) can now apply to the Ignacy Łukasiewicz Scholarship Programme.

The Programme offers tuition-free education at second-cycle programmes in Poland, and a monthly bursary of PLN 1,500 to cover living expenses to be disbursed by the Polish National Agency for Student Exchange.

Eligible to apply are citizens of the countries listed above who:

  • are graduates of first-cycle programmes (completed not earlier than in 2014) or last-year students of first-cycle programmes in the 2017/2018 academic year in such fields as exact sciences, natural sciences, technology, agriculture, forestry and veterinary medicine;
  • do not have a Master’s or engineer’s degree;
  • have at least a B2-level certificate in English;
  • are not graduates of Polish universities.

Candidates choose the university and academic programme they want to enrol on from among those offered by Polish higher education institutions. The studies are preceded by a one-year course that will prepare students for their stay in Poland (also subject to scholarship conditions).
