The aim of the Programme is to popularise the Polish language around the world and to support foreigners enrolled in Polish studies and completing Polish programmes carried out in foreign academic centres by affording them the opportunity of a one-or two-semester stay at their chosen public HEI in Poland.

The Programme is addressed to foreign students of Polish philology or enrolled in Polish studies or Polish programmes carried out as part of Slavic studies (encompassing the Polish language, culture and knowledge about Poland). During their stay at the Polish HEI, NAWA scholarship holders are free to develop their interests related to Polish studies by improving their command of Polish, participating in lectures and classes in accordance with their chosen studies’ curriculum, conducting research, carrying out scientific projects, gathering materials for a scientific publication or a diploma thesis and making use of resources found in HEI libraries and archives. The Applicants are the ones choosing the HEI where they wish to study. The field of studies chosen by the Applicant should be consistent with the studies curriculum they followed at their home HEI.

The Programme is also open to laureates and finalists of the Literature and Polish Language Olympiad held outside of Poland, who shall be eligible to receive a NAWA scholarship for the period of their first-or second-cycle Polish studies at their chosen HEI in Poland.
