On behalf of the Institute of History, University of Warsaw, I am glad to invite all foreign researchers in history, interested in a scholarship devoted to the history of Poland to apply for Scholarships of the Polish History Museum, to be realised with the institutional support of the Institute of History, University of Warsaw.
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.
Applications will be accepted until 28 November 2014.
I will be glad to issue a formal Letter of Acceptance, on behalf of the IH UW, for any foreign scholar willing to realise a Scholarships of the Polish History Museum in the Institute of History, University of Warsaw, and having presented their research project to be reviewed by one of Members of the Institute of History.
Project proposals will be accepted until 21 November 2014.
