Financial Support

In accordance with regulations mandated by national law, all of our students are financially supported by the the parent Institutes – NCBJ and ICHTJ as well as various research grant awards.

The monthly stipend is paid over a period of maximum 48 months and is not subject to income tax. The actual amounts vary somewhat. For students pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Physics the regular stipend (NCBJ Fellowship) is set at PLN3300 (currently PLN2928 after deductions); following a positive evaluation after 2 years of study this is raised to PLN3900 (currently PLN3460 after deductions). Some research projects are supported by external grants, and in those cases the stipend is typically higher and depends on the type of grant.

The School 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 (NFZ) 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.

We strongly encourage and support applications for external funding through projects related to the chosen area of research.
