Government of Poland scholarships
Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) is set up to coordinate state activities driving the process of internationalization of Polish academic and research institutions. The mission of NAWA is to foster the development of Poland in the area of science and higher education.
Through developing the existing grant and aid programmes, NAWA aims at developing Polish students mobility and encouraging foreigners to start their studies in Poland at a number of fields to be conducted both in Polish and foreign languages.
NAWA coordinates scholarship programmes under terms set forth in agreements, with the collaboration of Polish diplomatic missions and institutes which will publish the offer for students on their websites. The grant amount will depend on the type of study course.
The government-sponsored Konstanty Kalinowski Scholarship Programme is the largest program in Europe that lends assistance to young Belarusians unable to study in Belarus due to their political views.

Submitting declarations does not exempt from attaching the complete set of required documents to the application (Annex 2 to the Regulations of benefits for UW students).
Statement A – for people who get their income from the same taxable source as in 2018.
Statement B – for people who have not shown income on the tax office certificate or who have lost their entire income on the certificate.
The C statement – instead of ZUS for students – can be used if the student has not submitted a tax return (and there is a certificate from the Tax Office for this) and is subject to parental insurance (under 26 years of age). This statement in no way replaces the ZUS certificate from persons who submitted a tax return for 2018.
