Ad Polonos Scholarship Fund

The idea of scholarship

The Ad Polonos Scholarship Fund was established on the initiative and is maintained from funds donated for this purpose to the Jagiellonian University by Professor Urszula Marta Doleżal, who in this way wants to support the descendants of Polish exiles studying at the Jagiellonian University. The fund is also an expression of the memory of Professor Marian Doleżal, who came from a family that contributed to the Polishness of the borderland lands.
The scholarship is awarded for academic results to outstanding students of the Jagiellonian University and for scientific achievements to doctoral students of the Doctoral School of Medical and Health Sciences of the Jagiellonian University, who are descendants of Polish exiles.

Benefits

The scholarship is awarded for a period of 10 months (October-July) and paid monthly. Its amount in a given year is determined by the Rector of the Jagiellonian University (in the academic year 2023/2024, the scholarship is PLN 500 for students and PLN 600 for doctoral students).
Each time, the scholarship may be awarded to a maximum of 12 people (including a maximum of two doctoral students at doctoral schools).
