Support for PhD students

The aim of the promotional scholarships is to foster scientific and artistic initiatives of doctoral candidates, supporting their scientific and creative ideas, research and development activities. There are two types of funding available – doctoral scholarship and grants for (doctoral) academic visits.

The amount of funding for both schemes is determined annually, depending on a number and quality of submitted proposals, and the budget limit for the current year.

There are two types of candidates eligible for the funding:

  • PhD students in science, actively conducting scientific research – authors of published (or accepted for publishing) scientific papers;
  • PhD students in arts, actively conducting research and (or) creating and publicly presenting their works of art – authors of published (or accepted for publishing) or created and publicly presented works of art.

Calls for doctoral scholarship proposals are announced annually, while calls for grants for (doctoral) academic visits proposals take place twice a year.
