    Due to a mistake in the Regulations of the Summer Course of Polish Language and Culture, which was published on February 11 this year, an adjustment was made to the abovementioned document. In accordance with the provisions of point 3.2 " Merit-based evaluation proceeds pursuant to the criteria and scoring system indicated in point 3.2.1 and 3.2.2." (and not in point 3.4). In the place of the incorrectly specified minimum number of points to obtain a positive merit-based evaluation, the correct value was entered, and in the " Criteria for merit-based evaluation referring to Polish language teachers working in foreign academic centers" values totaling up to 100 points (not 10 points) were given.

    The change is of ordinal nature and does not affect the ongoing call for proposals.



    Due to a mistake in the Regulations of the Summer Course of Polish Language and Culture programme, which was published on February 11 this year, an adjustment was made to the abovementioned document. In point 3.2.2, the total of possible points has been corrected to 110. The change is a correction of an obvious error and does not affect the course of merit-based evaluation.
