Conditions of residency

Successful fellows who signed Host Contracts for five or ten months are provided with furnished office space and flats.

The provision of a living allowance (in the range of up to € 2000/month for a junior fellow and up to € 3000/month for a senior fellow – depending on the individual financial situation), accommodation, and coverage of travel expenses (one round trip) will be provided.


Eventual residencies shall not be construed as establishing any relationship of subordination or employment ties between fellows and the PIASt.

Successful fellows are expected to spend their time in Warsaw to under take and complete the project in the planned period.

Fellows remain the owners of results of their research. Fellows are required to acknowledge PIASt suport in all publications, documents and presentations related to their PIASt project and resulting from the research carried out during the fellowship. Upon completion of the project fellows will submit a final report outlining their scientific achievements.

The fellowship programme complies with the European Commission ethical provisions on privacy, data protection, confidentiality and intellectual property rules.

A project may not be submitted to another research institution at the same time.

An application that is not accepted for a PIASt fellowship can be re-submitted only once, but with information what has been corrected in the application that had been rejected.

"Junior" researchers may receive a scholarship in this category only once.

Former PIASt Senior Fellows cannot submit a new application within five years of the end of their stay at the PIASt Institute.
