This type of scholarship may be awarded to students after completing their first year of study.
The condition for obtaining the Rector’s Scholarship is to obtain a high average grade for the last year of study, and/or for scientific, artistic, or high sports results in an international or national competition.
A Rector’s Scholarship may also be applied for by a first-year student of the first-cycle, or uniform Master’s studies, who has been admitted to these studies in the year of passing the Matura exam; an Olympics winner, a finalist of the subject Olympics, or a medal winner in sporting competition, all contributing towards the title of ‘Polish Champion in Sport’.
First-year students of the second-cycle studies may apply for the Rector’s Scholarship, also on the basis of the results from the last year of undergraduate studies. If you have previously studied at a university, other than Vistula, you must attach to the application a certificate about the average grade from that previous university.
Rector’s Scholarship Applications for the best students are submitted twice a year at the beginning of each semester, according to the schedule. Rector’s scholarships are awarded twice per academic year, per semester, for up to 5 months.
The student is required to submit a separate application with complete documentation for each semester. The rector’s scholarship may receive a maximum of 10% of the best students in a given field of study, but cannot be granted to a student who, regardless of average grade and achievements:
repeats the year/semester of studies,
obtained a conditional entry or conditional credit for the next semester/year,
resumed studies after being struck off the list of students, due to failing a semester or year.
