The aim of the Ulam NAWA Programme is to increase the internationalisation of Polish institutions of science and higher education. The programme will allow both recognised and promising scientists who hold at least a doctoral degree, to visit Poland in order to strengthen the scientific potential of Polish entities and to participate in their scientific activities, primarily research projects and didactics. The programme will allow to invite scientists regardless of their age, from all around the world and representing all fields of science, including Polish scientists working permanently abroad (they may constitute a maximum of 10% of Fellows in the call). HEIs, scientific and research institutes will have the opportunity to invite specialists from their priority areas to Poland – they will make a significant contribution to the research conducted by a given institution, strengthen didactics or support the institution in applying for prestigious grants.
What is funded
Activities to be carried out during the scholarship may include:
- conducting research and/or development work

In addition to the above activities, the visit may also include conducting didactic classes at the host institution.
The programme provides financing for a scholarship that covers the Fellow’s living allowance of PLN 10,000 a month, along with a mobility allowance.
The visits under the Project can last from 6 to 24 months. The visits of foreign scientists have to commence between 1 January 2022 and 1 October 2022.
