The Maria Curie-Skłodowska University established a special Rector's Scholarship to reward its highest-performing students. The scholarship may be granted for one year. A student may re-apply for the scholarship each year providing that he or she maintains an excellent level of academic performance.
In order to be eligible, a student has to obtain an exceptional average grade score for the year. Students with other recognized accomplishments in science, art, or sports may also be taken into account.
