Scholarship of the Minister of Science and Higher Education
This is the most prestigious form of scholarship awarded to students in Poland. Until now as many as 84 Radom Academy of Economics students have been awarded with it. Currently we are leading among the private universities in Poland in the number of students with this scholarship. In the 2014/2015 academic year, our students were the only students in the region that received this prestigious scholarship. Receiving of this scholarship is not an easy task, as it’s awarded to those with the outstanding achievements in studying but also those who are active outside of Academia?s walls, they participate in conferences and research projects, publishing scientific papers, and work for the good of the local community. It’s helpful to combine the scholarship with Leader Academy program, as participants of the latter receive additional support from their tutor. Leader Academy program is a unique Radom Academy of Economics’ initiative in the scope of the whole region.
