Poland extends Ukraine support scheme to students


Initiative intended to help students continue studies and remain in Ukraine for half of scholarship

Poland’s National Science Centre research funder (NCN) has extended its scheme to help Ukrainian academics fleeing the Russian invasion, so students will benefit from it as well as researchers.

So far, 111 Ukrainian PhD holders have found employment in Poland under the scheme, the NCN said in an update on 26 July. 

From now onward, it said, students from Ukraine will be also supported to “continue their studies, work on their MA thesis or PhD dissertation, or pursue other forms of education in Poland”.

Scholarships will be paid out over six to 12 months and students will be able to spend up to half of that time in Ukraine working remotely. The maximum amount available for one student is 5,000 zlotys (€1,000).

Applications are open to research institutions.
