Candidates under this programme must be post-graduates wishing to pursue their research in the Polish universities. Fellowships are of short-term type lasting from 1 to 6 months.

The fellow must carry out research in a hosting institution subordinated to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, under the auspices of an academic supervisor. Confirmation of acceptance from the academic supervisor is imperative.
