This year nineteen students and three doctoral candidates from UWM received grants of the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding achievements. The record number of grantees fell to the Faculty of Law and Administration – they have seven grantees. At the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology there are five grantees, including three doctoral candidates. The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as the Faculty of Social Sciences have two grantees at each of the faculties. The rest of the students represent the Faculty of Humanities, Environmental Management and Agriculture, Geodesy, Geospatial and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Animal Bioengineering and Technical Sciences.
Three students received the grants for the second time in a row.
− I would like to express my appreciation for these students. The grants confirm that they make the best of the time spent on studying. Moreover, the fact that there are so many of these grants proves that the standards of education at our University is already high, and it is still growing. Thus, it is clear that UWM fulfils its role, that is educating young people, very efficiently – notices Prof. Janusz Piechocki, the Vice-Rector for Students Affairs.
It is not easy to receive the Minister’s grant. In order to succeed, one needs to have high grade point average as well as, for instance, outstanding scientific achievements, international prizes or awards of distinction. The grant for students is 14.000 zlotys, and for doctoral candidates – 22.000 zlotys per year.
