International Students: Funding programmes for mobility to Poland

Pologne Campus France ABG ENGL

In October 2017, the Polish Government established the National Agency for Academic Exchange NAWA to support academic mobility and Poland's development in higher education and research. Supporting academic mobility stands among NAWA’s most important objectives. NAWA is a major player in mobility, alongside the other main operators NCN, NCBiR and FNP who also run their own programmes. NAWA's role is similar to that of the operator Campus France. Here is a non-exhaustive list of possible funding.
