Social scholarship

More details

Neither the conditions for receiving a social scholarship nor the method of determining the amount of monthly income per person in the student's family that entitles him to apply for a social scholarship have changed. Basically, the method of determining the monthly income per person in the family of a student applying for a social grant has not changed, except for the necessary adaptation to other regulations of the Act. Similarly, without any significant changes, the institution of an independent student who can submit applications without documenting the income of other designated persons has been regulated. Separate regulation of the method of determining the income from running a farm has been abandoned in the Act, therefore the rules set out in the Act on family benefits apply here. The only significant change in the case of a student whose monthly income per person in the family does not exceed the amount specified in the Act on social assistance (from October 1, 2018 - PLN 528,00) who applies for a social grant - is the introduction of the obligation to submit a certificate of a social welfare center with a personal and family income situation covering the period from the base year (i.e. the year preceding the academic cancer in which the student applies for the benefit) to the date of issuing the certificate.

This certificate must be up-to-date so that it can contribute to the clarification of the case, and thus, constitute evidence within the meaning of the Code of Administrative Procedure. If the applicant does not provide such a certificate, the scholarship committee or the appeals scholarship committee is obliged, as a rule, to refuse to grant a social scholarship to such a student. In the case of presenting the certificate referred to above, which does not indicate the actual income and financial situation of the student's family, and its content is limited only to the fact of using / not using the forms of social assistance referred to in separate regulations, it is considered as failure to attach to the application the certificate referred to in Art. 88 sec. 4 of the Law on Higher Education and Science and the commission refuses to grant the benefit. It is worth noting that the obligation to submit a certificate also applies accordingly to foreigners who may apply for a social scholarship. Exceptionally, either the scholarship commission or the appellate commission the scholarship commission may award the student a social scholarship if the reasons for not attaching a certificate from the social welfare center about the income and financial situation of the student and his family to the application for a social scholarship were justified and the student convincingly documented the sources of income for the family . The recognition by the authority that the student has not credibly and completely documented the family's livelihoods, implies the refusal to grant the scholarship. The scholarship commission also takes into account the epidemiological situation in Poland, which makes it difficult to obtain the required documents.

Chancellor's Scholarship

More details

The conditions for awarding the rector's scholarship were only slightly expanded. They may be awarded to a student who obtained outstanding academic results with an average grade for the 2019/2020 academic year not lower than 4,3 and scientific or artistic achievements, or sports achievements in competition at least at the national level. In the previous legislation, one of the premises was the "high grade point average", now replaced with "outstanding learning outcomes".

Changes have been made to awarding the rector's scholarship to students admitted to the first year of studies in the year of passing the matriculation examination. It is absolutely due in the event of submitting an appropriate application:

  • winners of the international Olympics or winners or finalists of the Olympics of the central level, referred to in the regulations on the education system, and therefore it was specified that regional winners do not have such rights
  • medalists of at least sports competition for the title of Polish Champion in a given sport, referred to in the regulations on sport.
    The rule was that the rector's scholarship is awarded to no more than 10% of students in a given field of study. If the number of students is less than 10, the rector's scholarship may be awarded to 1 student. When determining this number, the above-mentioned students who receive the rector's scholarship for the first year of studies in the year of passing their matriculation examination are not taken into account.

Grant

More details

In the new act, the existing regulation on the allowance has been changed. It can be granted to a student who is temporarily in a difficult life situation (and not in a "financial situation" as before) and it is no longer necessary for it to happen for "random reasons". Thus, the allowance may be granted in a non-random situation, e.g. the birth of a child. The concept of "difficult life situation" may be specified in the regulations of student benefits under "specific criteria". Granting the allowance to a given student may not take place more often than twice a year.
