When can students and doctoral candidates apply for the allowance aid?
If you are in a difficult financial situation, resulted from the coronavirus pandemic, you are entitled to apply for allowances. There are the following conditions:
- Loss of a major source of income by you, your spouse or your parent (in case you are financially dependent on them);
- The sudden illness of yours or a member of your immediate family;
- Death of your child, spouse or parent (in case you are financially dependent on them).
The allowance aid can be awarded to international students and doctoral candidates. Their eligibility depends on when they started their studies at the University of Warsaw:
- all international students who started studies on 1st October 2019 and later (i.e. they are on 1st year of studies in academic year 2019/2020) can be awarded the allowance aid;
- international students and doctoral candidates who started studies before 1st October 2019 (i.e. they are on at least 2nd year of studies) can be awarded the allowance aid if they pursue studies on rules applying for Polish citizens (see § 32 of Rules).
If you have any questions, please send an email: email@example.com (in the case of students), and firstname.lastname@example.org (in the case of doctoral candidates).
