Student mini-grants are awarded as part of the Education Individualisation Program (PIK). This is a special subsidy, which in previous years was awarded as part of the funds granted by the Minister of Science and Higher Education as part of the subsidy for co-financing pro-quality actions from the funds for the students who obtained the best results of their matura exams in the year of starting their studies. In the 2019/2020 academic year, on the basis of the so-called Act 2.0. such funds were not allocated to the universities, but the programme was continued from central funds by Rector.
