Grants and scholarships for doctoral students


Grants and scholarships for doctoral students

Young Researcher 2020-2025 is a new programme of grants and scholarships for students and doctoral students at the University of Wrocław.

The aim of the programme is to support the scientific and research development of students and doctoral candidates. The scholarship programme will recognise the candidates with the best results. The grant programme will help students and doctoral students to establish contacts with the international scientific community. It will help them to undertake research at universities abroad and to organise or actively participate in international scientific events.

The programme is financed from the funds allocated to the University of Wrocław’s project within the Initiative of Excellence – Research University competition.


Good news for first-year and long-cycle students. For the best of you, we have PLN one million for scholarships! This is thanks to the Young Researcher programme, which has been set up as part of the Research University. The competition will be held once a year until 2025. Here are the detailed rules.

Students who, in the year of passing the Matura exam, were admitted to the first year of first-cycle studies or long-cycle studies as medallists, laureates and finalists of olympiads or candidates with the highest results obtained in the recruitment process will be able to apply for the scholarships. In total, as much as PLN 1 million will go to scholarship holders each year. Details can be found in the Rules and Regulations enclosed below.
