The Scholarship Fund endowed by the Polish History Museum is charged with supporting academic research on the history of Poland as well as activities propagating Polish history abroad. The scholarship is addressed to foreigners who study, or wish to study Polish history.
Scholarships are awarded for a period of one to three months. The amount of the grant is 1,000 euro monthly. The scholarship holder is responsible for travel and accommodation expenses.
Scholarships are awarded to the winners of a competition for the best project, either educational, research or promotional in nature. A jury comprised of eminent Polish historians will select the winners of the competition.
The Museum may also support the publication of works that result from materials gathered over the course of the scholarship. The Polish History Museum is a state institution of culture involved in activities promoting open science and in broadening the availability of works supported by public funding. Since the seventh edition, works realized with material gathered during the programme will be published under the open-license Creative Commons, as selected by the recipient of the grant.
There is no limit to the number of times one may apply for the scholarship.
