Before receiving fellowship funds

Before funds are received by the Jagiellonian University, successful applicants may decide in what form they would like to receive their fellowship money. In order to do that they should fill out  a form required to receive funds and send it (in an electronic format only) to the  SYLFF Program Coordinator. The form cannot be filled in by hand.  

  • If cash payment is chosen the applicant should visit the Department of Foreign Currency Accounting in Collegium Novum, room 8a, tel. 12 663 11 20 to collect a form authorizing cash collection at the bank. It should be done a few days before the intended collection date as the bank should have some time to make the payout. 
  • If a bank transfer is chosen, currency transferred will be the same as the currency of the bank account. Transfer fees will be paid by the Jagiellonian University.

Further, to obtain money the applicant should submit a foreign visit application signed by the director of the applicant's mother institute and the Dean to Ms M.Komenda at the Section of Foreign Visits, International Relations Office. Applications may be submitted well ahead of the deadline but at the latest they should be submitted 10 days before the planned departure. Upon signing the application by the Vice-Rector for Research and Structural Funds it will be sent to the Department of Foreign Currency Accounting and then the Bursar's Office will be able to make fellowship money available to the candidate.
