Poland: PROM Programme – International Scholarship Exchange of PhD candidates and academic staff

The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) is pleased to inform that a call for applications to the PROM Programme has just started. The call for proposals is open till 9 May 2019.

The aim of the Programme is to improve competencies of doctoral students and academic staff from Poland and abroad, including those from outside the EU, through international scholarship exchanges. NAWA will finance selected projects of universities and scientific units offering scholarships for financing costs related to participation of doctoral students and academic staff in short educational exchanges (lasting from 5 to 30 days). Within the understanding of this Programme, short educational exchanges shall include:

  • conducting didactic classes;
  • participating in conferences, summer/winter schools, courses, workshops, internships and study visits;
  • gathering materials for didactic or scientific work, acquiring skills related to the operation of unique research equipment or developing skills related to writing international grant applications. 

Applications for funds under the Programme may be filed only by Polish entities (universities, scientific units of the Polish Academy of Sciences, research institutes, international scientific institutes operating on the territory of the Republic of Poland), but each project must include a provision for both Polish doctoral students and academic staff going abroad and foreign doctoral students and academic staff coming to Poland. Therefore, foreign PhD candidates and academic staff who are interested in scholarship exchange should contact their Polish partners.
