Upcoming dates


The university awards three types of scholarships: scholarship rector, social and scholarship for people with disabilities. Each of them requires an application through the scholarship system.

All types of scholarships can be applied for simultaneously. The total amount of scholarships received cannot in total exceed 38% of the professor's salary (per month). This pool does not include a financial aid or special scholarship.

Once a year, at the beginning of the summer semester, applications are accepted for the Prof. Z. Michalevich scholarship. They are aimed at full-time computer science students who have completed their studies, obtained an engineering degree and are taking master's degree in the same field of study, daily, at PJAIT.


Tuition reductions

Tuition reduction for the summer semester 2023/24 for academic performance in the winter semester 2023/24 will be granted at the end of March 2024.
Each student who was granted a reduction received an email with the relevant information.


Rector's scholarship for winter semester 2023/24

Dear all,
applications for the rector's scholarship for the summer term 2023/24 for academic performance/achievement will be available from March 1 to 15 .
We would like to remind you that:
-the recruitment of applications for the rector's scholarship is of a competitive nature, which means that the scholarship is awarded after all applicationsare collected and a ranking is created based on them;
-the rector's scholarshipand tuition reduction are completely different benefits - the reduction is automatically awarded to students with the highest average (who meet certain conditions), while the rector's scholarship should be applied for through the scholarship system;
-before submitting an application, you should check whether all the grades for credits and exams required by the study program have been entered, and possibly ask the instructors to fill in the gaps (except for gaps resulting from a change in mode/direction of study).


Dear Sirs,

In the coming academic year, scholarship applications are available from October 1. Applications can be submitted through the scholarship system (button below)

Applications for social scholarships and scholarships for people with disabilities can be submitted from October 1, 2023 to May 31, 2024.

Rector's scholarship: additional documents are required only when a student applies for a merit-based scholarship.

Scholarship for persons with disabilities: students attach a certificate of disability or a certificate of inability (total or partial) to work. The certificate must be issued by a Polish assessment body.

Social scholarship: the number and type of documents depend on the composition of the student's family. Please carefully read the information at PJAIT and the regulations. For certificates issued in a foreign language, you must provide a translation from a certified translator. It is necessary to prepare documents for the year 2022.

Important!!! Please note that all necessary documents (income certificates, disability certificates, etc.) must be uploaded before you click SUBMIT APPLICATION. Clicking SUBMIT APPLICATION before completing the application in full will result in the inability to edit it later.

Also, please remember to deliver a paper, hand-signed application - in the hall of Building B there is a box labeled "Scholarship Applications", the signed application (and only the application, without additional documents) should be dropped in there. If someone cannot deliver the application in Warsaw, he can send the document by snail mail to the address of the Warsaw headquarters PJAIT with the note 'Students' Office'.


Scholarships for students PJAIT

Rector's Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded once a semester, at the beginning of the winter and summer semesters, for achievements from the previous semester. It is awarded on the basis of the number of credits earned (method of conversion below).

Students who do not have any outstanding subjects (exercises or exams), are not immediately after an ITN-only semester and are not currently (during the application period) on such a semester can apply for the Rector's scholarship. The number of points is calculated on the basis of the average - it is a decimal number, which means that an average of 4.75 is 75 points, and an average of 5.00 is 100 points. 

Students who have achieved outstanding athletic, artistic or scientific achievements (provided they have no outstanding subjects) may apply for the Rector's scholarship. Each achievement is scored accordingly. Achievements are taken into account only if they relate to the previous semester and if they are properly documented (certificate from the organizer, diploma). In the case where a student applies for a scholarship for achievements and for the average, he can receive the Rector's scholarship only for one title, the one for which he achieves more points.

Based on the points obtained, ranking lists are created for each major separately. The Rector's scholarship can be awarded to a maximum of 10% of the best students in a given major (counting from the highest number of points), so there may be a situation that, despite good and very good academic results, the scholarship will not be awarded. The award and the amount of the scholarship are also dependent on the subsidy for a given calendar year, as well as the number of social scholarships and aid grants awarded. 

The University Scholarship Committee may decide on a minimum average from which to apply for a scholarship.

Scholarship for Persons with Disabilities

Students who have a current disability certificate or a certificate of total or partial disability may apply for a scholarship for persons with disabilities. The amount of the scholarship depends on the degree of disability.

In the case of a disability certificate issued by institutions in a country other than Poland, it is necessary to obtain such a certificate from authorized institutions in Poland.

Forget

The deadline and method of applying for the allowance is the same as for the scholarship.

An aid payment is a one-time non-refundable benefit granted at the request of a student who is temporarily in a difficult life situation. To apply for an allowance, you must submit an application (application can be downloaded here) with a fair description of the situation and attach documents that confirm the situation (this can be a contract termination, a statement from the employer about the suspension of work, etc.).

You can apply for an allowance twice in an academic year. You cannot apply twice on the same basis.

Social scholarship

All students who are in a difficult material situation may apply for a social grant. The absolute condition is a monthly per capita income of no more than PLN 1294.4, but the income criterion is an auxiliary criterion, not a decisive one, which in practice means that showing a low per capita income is not tantamount to receiving a scholarship. In some cases, the student may be asked to provide sources of income in addition to those shown in the documentation attached to the application.

1. family composition:

Family composition includes, in addition to the student himself:

  • Spouse, if the student has a husband/wife,
  • Children of the student who are minors or older, as long as they are under 26 and still studying - a birth certificate or a certificate from the school is required,
  • or
  • parents, legal or actual guardians (in the case where one of the parents is deceased, it is necessary to show a death certificate; in the case of divorced parents - to show a court judgment),
  • minor or older siblings, as long as none of them is over 26 years old, still studying and dependent on their parents - a birth certificate or certificate from the school is required. If it is a person with a disability, it counts as part of the family regardless of age.

If the student plans to provide only his or her income without including parents and siblings, he or she must submit a statement of self-reliance (it is included in the scholarship application) and meet one of the conditions: being at least 26 years old, being married, having a dependent child, coming of age in foster care or having a constant source of income greater than PLN 930.65 (constant, that is, in the previous calendar year and the current year).

2. how to determine income?

All types of income counting or not in the income necessary to count the scholarship are listed in the regulations. Of the most common - alimony, if the student gets such, counts towards income. 500+ - does not count. Allowances - do not count.

Note: The so-called 'standstill' benefit (for those who are self-employed and have received such a COVID19 countermeasure benefit) counts as earned income.

Income documentation:

  1. Demonstration of income requires submission of original documents. If you apply electronically, attach scans of the originals. 
  2. The maximum monthly income per person in the family, which entitles one to apply for a social scholarship, is PLN 1294.4. This is a non-exceedable income, which means that if this income is exceeded even by 1 zloty, the scholarship cannot be awarded.
  3. Every adult member of the family, even if he or she is studying and not working (or is a pensioner), should go to the tax office for a certificate of earnings and to the Social Security Administration for a certificate of contributions paid. A PIT filed with the tax office is not a confirmation of income.
  4. If someone in the family is self-employed and settles on a tax card or lump sum, they should have a certificate from the tax office, on which will be the income and, very importantly, the tax percentage rate. To calculate the income, the student will need a table, which is issued annually in the form of a notice (late July/early August). The current table can be found here.
  5. If someone in the family has income from a farm, he or she should have a certificate from the municipality on the number of converted hectares. This number is multiplied by the amount that the Central Statistical Office (CSO) will provide around September 20, and this will give you the amount of income from the farm. If the student (or a family member) owns land in different places, you add up the conversion hectares for each of them and recalculate as for one farm. If the number of conversion hectares is (for all the land you own together, not for the individual lands you own) less than 1, it is not a farm as defined by the regulations and you do not calculate its value on the basis of conversion hectares.
  6. It is necessary to provide a statement from a social welfare center about the student's economic and income situation, if the income per person in the family is equal to PLN 600 or less. Students under the care of such a center, should receive a certificate on the economic situation of the family, if they are not covered - they should get a written refusal to issue such a certificate.
  7. The possibility to apply for a social scholarship in an increased amount is still valid, but ONLY IN SPECIFICALLY REASONED CASES. This means that the situation of the person who applies for an increase is unique compared to other people who meet the conditions for receiving the scholarship. A particularly justified case is such a "situation in the life of a person or family, which, beyond all doubt, without the need for any careful interpretation of the existing state of affairs, makes it possible to conclude that such drastic events, so severe in their consequences and so far interfering with life plans, do not belong to everyday events, or even to extraordinary events. They are events that occur completely occasionally, requiring many unfortunate coincidences, beyond the possibilities of human foresight" (Judgment of the Supreme Administrative Court of 28.8.2008, IOSK1416/07, LEX No. 489088.). "The special cases referred to in Article 41(1) of the Law on Social Security must be so pronounced and divergent from the situation of persons meeting the income criterion that they justify the granting of this special assistance, which consequently leads to the equalization of the situation of persons with incomes exceeding the income threshold adopted by the legislator with the situation of persons who do not receive such income" (Judgment of the WSA in Gliwice of 15.4.2008, IV SA/G1 15507, LEX No. 509368). In a word, we can grant a stipend in an increased amount to someone who suddenly finds himself in a situation that drastically changes his life, alters his plans, and could not have been foreseen or prevented.
  8. Earned and lost income is a well-defined and closed catalog of income that can be deducted or added (see the regulations for a list). In special cases, such income can not be deducted - if a student enters into an employment contract with the same employer more than once, and no more than 3 months elapse between one and the other contract, this is treated as income from an employment contract.
  9. Living expenses, loans or tuition are not deducted from the income recognized in the application.

Scholarship application

Scholarship payments

Scholarships are paid once a month from December (with compensation for earlier months, if warranted) until July of the following calendar year. It is not possible to pay the scholarship immediately after receiving the decision.

If you receive different types of scholarships, they must be paid to the same account number. It is not possible, for example, for a social stipend to be paid to tuition and a rector's stipend to a private account number. If a student has specified in the applications two different ways of paying the stipend - to tuition and to a private account, both stipends will be paid to tuition, unless the student submits an application with a declaration of the choice of how to transfer the stipend.

If the 'for tuition' option is indicated, the scholarship is transferred to the same account into which tuition is paid. Tuition or any other dues are not modified in any way. It is up to the student to check the balance and deposit the appropriate amounts according to it.

Scholarship system - how to apply

The system is only open on certain dates (to be viewed at the bottom of the page), outside of these dates it is not possible to submit an application.

After logging in, the student selects the specific type of scholarship they want to apply for. After going through the screens, you will be able to see the application panel.

In the case of the Rector's scholarship (for performance) , additional files should be attached when the student applies for a scholarship for sports, artistic or scientific achievements, and also when the student applies for a scholarship for an average from another university.

In the case of a scholarship for people with disabilities, a current certificate must be attached.

In the case of a social scholarship, documents confirming the income of individual family members must be attached in accordance with the regulations.

Only after attaching all the necessary files can you click "Submit Application" - if you do this earlier, before attaching the files, you will not be able to return to complete the files.

The submitted application can be found in the scholarship system, in the 'Applications' section - please note the statuses. If an application has been started, but the generated file has not been attached, the application will have a status of 'unsigned' and only when this status is checked will the application be visible. Applications that have the status 'unsigned' after closing the system will be considered as not submitted and archived.

The statuses may change as applications are processed. This is information for the student on what stage the procedure is at, but it is not an administrative decision on whether or not to grant the scholarship.

Such a decision can be received in person at the dean's office by appointment within 14 days of the email information, or you can immediately request that it be sent by snail mail (if it is not received within 14 days of receiving the email, it will be sent to the mailing address).
