How to Apply?
Right after enrolling in the school and activating an account in the uj.edu.pl domain send a scan of your current disability certificate or the equivalent of such document for verification at the Jagiellonian University’s Accessibility Center (in Polish: Centrum Dostępności, CD UJ) to email@example.com;
For doctoral students starting their education at Doctoral School, this activity should be performed before submitting the statement for scholarship purposes in the USOSweb system. Only after the data from the statement have been entered into the USOS system by the “CD UJ” Advisor, is it possible to successfully submit the scholarship application online (at usosweb.uj.edu.pl, usually the next day after data migration).
When you receive feedback from CD UJ, you can submit a statement for scholarship purposes via usosweb.uj.edu.pl according to the path: 'For all' → 'Applications' → 'Statement for doctoral students at the doctoral school regarding the doctoral scholarship for the academic year 20... (without the Medical College)'. Approve, print, and submit it (together with a copy of the email from the “CD UJ” confirming that the certificate data have been entered into the system) to the Secretariat of the Education Programme.
If your disability certificate is temporary, remember to send a scan of the updated one to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks before the end of the month in which the previous certificate expires.
If you fail to update the certificate on your part, the school will not be held responsible for failure to make the increased scholarship payment in the month following the certificate's expiry.
