Terms of granting social scholarships
A social scholarship is awarded at the request of the student whose financial situation is defined as difficult. The application shall be accompanied by documents proving the student's financial situation. A detailed list of documents is attached as Annex No. 1 to the Regulations.

When the application is submitted until the 10th day of the month, the social scholarship is paid beginning with the month in which the application has been filed; if the application is submitted after this date, the social scholarship is paid from the following month, without compensation for the previous months. Students who transfer from one organisational unit of the University of Warsaw to another UW organisational unit during the academic year lose the right to receive the social scholarship and the special scholarship for the disabled in the former unit. At the new organisational unit, the student may apply for benefits on general principles.

Polish citizens and foreigners who are the UW students may apply for the social scholarship provided that they:
1) are authorised to settle in the territory of the Republic of Poland;
2) have a refugee status granted by the Republic of Poland;
3) remain under temporary protection in the territory of the Republic of Poland;
4) are migrant workers who are nationals of the European Union Member State or Member States of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) – parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA), or if they have been or were employed in Poland, or if they are members of their families providing that they live in the territory of the Republic of Poland;
5) have received the permission to stay in the territory of the Republic of Poland as the long-term resident of the European Community;
6) have been granted the permission to reside in the territory of the Republic of Poland for the specified period of time due to the circumstance referred to in Article 53 Paragraph 1 Points 7, 13 and 14 of the Act on Aliens of 13 June 2003 (consolidated text, Journal of Laws of 2006, No. 234, pos. 1694, as amended);
7) hold a valid Card of the Pole;
8) are foreigners who have been granted subsidiary protection in the territory of the Republic of Poland.

Family members of persons referred to in Paragraph 1 Point 4 shall be the persons mentioned in Article 2 Paragraph 4 of the Act of 14 July 2006 on the Entry into, Residence in and Exit from the Territory of the Republic of Poland of Nationals of the European Union Member States and Their Family Members (Journal of Laws, No. 144, pos. 1043, as amended).

The social scholarship is awarded on the basis of monthly income per person in the student's family, gained in the tax year preceding the academic year for which the benefit is to be granted. In the case of the loss of income, the right to the social scholarship shall be based on the income reduced by the lost income. In the case of gaining income, the right to the social scholarship shall be determined on the basis of the income referred to in Paragraph 1 enlarged by the income earned.

While determining the amount of income that permits students to apply for the social scholarship, income earned by the following persons is taken into account:
1) the student;
2) the student's spouse as well as minor children, children receiving education until the age of 26 (if the age of 26 is turned in the last year of studies – until they are completed) and children with disabilities regardless of age dependent on the student or their spouse;
3) the student's parents, legal guardians, actual guardians as well as their dependent minor children, children receiving education until the age of 26 (if the age of 26 is turned in the last year of studies – until they are completed) and children with disabilities regardless of age.

If the student is financially independent, the income mentioned above is not taken into consideration when determining the amount of income entitling to apply for the social scholarship. A monthly income amount is calculated by the student according to the principles set out in Article 179 Paragraph 5 of the Act of 27 July 2005 – Law on Higher Education and the Act of 28 November 2003 on Family Benefits (consolidated text, Journal of Laws of 2006, No. 139, pos. 992), including a detailed list contained in Annex No. 2 to the Regulations and the appropriate written statement enclosed to the application for the social scholarship.

The student is considered to be financially independent if the student or their spouse meet all the following conditions:
1) had a regular source of income in the last fiscal year;
2) has had a regular source of income for the current year;
3) the monthly income in the periods referred to in Points 1 and 2 is not lower than 1.30 of the sum of the amounts specified in Article 5 Paragraph 1 and Article 6 Paragraph 2 Point 3 of the Act of 28 November 2003 on Family Benefits;
4) has not submitted a statement on running the household jointly with their parents or one of them.

If the student is not financially independent, the level of income which entitles to apply for the social scholarship shall be determined by taking into account the income referred to in Paragraph 23 Section 1 Point 3. In justified cases, the head of the general organisational unit of the University of Warsaw or the respective Scholarship Commission or the Appeal Scholarship Commission may request delivering the opinion of the welfare system entity responsible for determining the income and financial assets of individuals and families, and include it in the proceedings.

The right to the social scholarship is determined again during the semester if one of the following situations occur:
1) increase in the number of family members;
2) decrease in the number of family members, also due to the fact that the dependent child receiving education has turned 26 years of age;
3) loss of income;
4) gaining income;
5) obtaining the decision on the degree of disability or the equivalent of such decision by the student's siblings or the student's child regardless of age; however, these persons must be dependent on the student's family; the same applies in the event of such decision expiration due to the end of the period for which disability was adjudged or for other reasons.

The student granted the social scholarship is obliged to immediately notify the respective Scholarship Commission about the aforementioned circumstances. Full-time students being in a difficult financial situation may receive the social scholarship in an increased amount due to the fact that they reside in the student dormitory or in a place other than the student dormitory provided that their daily commuting from the permanent place of residence to the university prevents or significantly interferes with studying. The student referred to in Paragraph 1 may obtain the social scholarship in an increased amount also due to the fact that they live with an unemployed spouse or their child in the student dormitory or in a place other than the student dormitory.

When applying for the social scholarship in an increased amount due to the place of residence other than the student dormitory, the student presents a copy of the house lease agreement detailing the charges incurred. If the student receives the social scholarship in an increased amount due to the fact that they reside in the student dormitory, the student is every month required to provide the respective Scholarship Commission with the certificate that the fees for the student dormitory have been paid. In the event of failure to fulfil this obligation, the payment of the scholarship will be suspended. Increasing the amount of the social scholarship may not exceed the amount of costs incurred when residing in the student dormitory or in a place other than the student dormitory. The student is expected to immediately notify the authority granting benefits of:
1) the resignation from the accommodation in the student dormitory by the student or their spouse;
2) the expiration or termination of the house lease agreement;
3) the hitherto non-working spouse, who has lived with the student, returning to the labour market.
