PhD and Proud

Universities in Poland do not fund doctoral students, however, they can count on a host of perks. A doctoral ID card provides discounts of 51% for rail travel and PKS buses. However, this also differs from city to city. For example, Warsaw doctoral students can count on a discount of 50% exclusively on long-term tickets. In addition, a criterion of age has been introduced. Doctoral students need to be over 30 for these discounts to apply. Furthermore, doctoral students in a difficult financial situation can apply for ‘social scholarships’. Persons applying for it have to meet income criteria, which change year on year.
