‘Solidary with Belarus’ – NAWA Scholarships for Students, Scientists and Teachers

The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) is going to support students, scientists and teachers with scholarships as part of the government initiative ‘Solidary with Belarus.’

Together with the Conference of Rectors of Academic Schools in Poland (CRASP), NAWA is going to carry out three support measures dedicated to the Belarusians on behalf of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The measures are: ‘Solidary with Students,’ ‘Solidary with Scientists’ and ‘Solidary with Teachers'.

The measure ‘Solidary with Students’ is going to involve 150 scholarships for the academic year 2020/2021. NAWA will allocate PLN 2 Million (app. EUR 654 930,00) for this purpose. Belarusian scientists, on the other hand, can count on 25 research fellowships at Polish universities and research institutes. The budget for the ‘Solidary with Scientists’ measure likewise amounts to PLN 2 Million (app. EUR 654 930,00).

In addition, NAWA is going to award 15 scholarships to Polish language teachers under the measure ‘Solidary with Teachers.’ The beneficiaries will be able to take up post-graduate studies in the academic year 2020/2021. The budget for this action amounts to PLN 53 000 (app. EUR 11 571,49). The beneficiaries will be selected by the University of Silesia.
