The University of Warsaw has been allocated over PLN760,000 from the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange for the cooperation of the 4EU+ Alliance with three partner institutions from Ukraine. The joint project with Ukrainian universities will foster flexible education paths, provide access to the European Education Area and strengthen research and didactic potentials.
In the former edition of the NAWA programme “Solidarity with Ukraine”, the UW received PLN350,000 for scholarships for students and doctoral candidates from Ukraine. The programme was conducted from 1st July through 30th September 2022. 34 Ukrainians participated in intensive Polish and English language courses as well as in the preparatory courses to build up adaptation, subjects, social and IT skills.
The current edition of the programme allows for support actions by Polish universities that are associated in alliances of the European Universities to help partner higher education institutions from Ukraine. The allocated funds amount to PLN16 million.
