Scholarships, current PhD Students and employment
1) Can I be a performer in a grant and enroll in the Doctoral School?
Yes, you can. However, it has to be determined whether it is possible to refinance the doctoral scholarship. Such a question should be addressed to the financing institution, e.g. NCN, NAWA, NCBiR, ERC and the unit which takes care of the grant (CAWP). In this case it is necessary to contact the Director of the Doctoral School.
2) Can I apply to the Doctoral School as an academic teacher or researcher?
According to the Act, a doctoral student cannot be an academic teacher or research worker conducting classes with students.
3) Can I apply to the Doctoral School as a technical or administrative employee?
It is possible. The condition is that you should have no classes with students.
4) Is it possible for a doctor to enroll in the Doctoral School?
Yes, it is, but he will not receive a scholarship (this is excluded by law).

Yes, he can. During the recruitment process, please provide information about the title of your doctoral thesis, a short description of your existing doctoral project, the name of the supervisor and the year of your doctoral studies.
6) Are there any scholarships, increase of scholarships and other allowances at the Doctoral School?
There is a statutory scholarship at the Doctoral School (approx. 2200 net for the first two years). Outstanding scientific achievements may be promoted by increasing the scholarship, but this will be the subject of analysis after the first year of the School's operation.
