Most of our students are financially supported by the NCBJ. A necessary condition is to pass the entrance exam with an overall grade of A or B.
The monthly stipend is PLN 2200 and is not subject to income tax. It is paid over a period of maximum 48 months, unless an extension is granted, in which case it can be paid for an additional period of up to 12 months. In some cases limited housing assistance may be available.
NCBJ does NOT cover the cost of health insurance for students from outside the EU. The monthly cost of health insurance with the Polish state-run health insurer (ZUS) is under 50 PLN. There are also many private options. EU citizens will be covered, but they need to obtain an E104 form from the insurers in their home countries and send it to Ms. Chojnowska.
We encourage and support applications for external funding through projects related to the chosen area of research.
