Scholarship competition is organised by Towarzystwo Szkół Zjednoczonego Świata im. prof. Pawła Czartoryskiego
Polish Scholarship Scheme is a scholarship scheme with 30 years of history organised by Towarzystwo Szkół Zjednoczonego Świata. The first scholarship was awarded in 1992 to Dulwich College. Since then, 29 other schools have participated in our programme and this number has grown year on year. Over the years, Towarzystwo has awarded as many as 325 scholarships to our partner schools in the UK, Austria, Germany, and Israel. In 2022, the programme underwent a transformation and was given a new name, logo and separate website.
Our scholarships cover up to 100% of the cost of tuition, accommodation and meals, and are based on the individual financial needs of the candidates.
Towarzystwo Szkół Zjednoczonego Świata is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation with the status of a public benefit organisation, whose main objective is to support the development of civil society through international youth education in the spirit of tolerance, protection of human rights and social activism.
Our organisation is non-profit and is sustained solely by the contributions and donations of members and sponsors. The members are mainly past and present scholarship recipients, their families, but also other people who are close to our mission and who support our activities.
The founder and first chairman of Towarzystwo was Professor Paweł Czartoryski, historian, member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, currently patron of the organisation.
Parallel to the Polish Scholarship Scheme, Towarzystwo also organises a scholarship programme to UWC schools. More information can be found at: https://www.pl.uwc.org
