The aim of the Ulam Programme is to increase the internationalisation of Polish institutions of science and higher education. The Programme will allow both recognised and promising scientists who hold at least a doctoral degree, to visit Poland in order to strengthen the scientific potential of Polish entities and to participate in their scientific activities, primarily research projects and didactics. The Programme will allow to invite scientists regardless of their age, from all around the world and representing all fields of science, including Polish scientists working permanently abroad (they may constitute a maximum of 10% of Fellows in the call). HEIs, scientific and research institutes will have the opportunity to invite specialists from their priority areas to Poland – they will make a significant contribution to the research conducted by a given institution, strengthen didactics or support the institution in applying for prestigious grants.
Activities to be carried out during the Scholarship may include:
- conducting research and/or development work
- post-doctoral training
- obtaining materials for scientific work or publication
In addition to the above activities, the visit may also include conducting didactic classes at the Host institution.
The visits under the Project can last from 6 to 24 months. The Programme provides financing for a Scholarship that covers the Fellow’s living allowance of PLN 10,000 a month, along with a mobility allowance.
The application under the Program shall be submitted also by a scientist with at least a doctoral degree or an equivalent degree obtained abroad, who, together with the institution of the Polish higher education and science system, has obtained the Seal of Excellence certificate under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships programme, 2020 edition.

About the patron
Stanisław Marcin Ulam (1909 -1984) was a brilliant Polish mathematician who earned a PhD from the Lviv Polytechnic in 1933. Prof. Ulam was a member of the internationally renowned Lviv School of Mathematics and co-author of the Scottish Book. Just before the outbreak of the Second World War, he went to the USA to join the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Several American universities appointed him as an associate professor (e.g. University of Wisconsin, University of Colorado Boulder, Florida State University).
