The City cares for its students and appreciates their contribution to the development of science. Therefore, each year the City Office organises competitions and awards scientific, artistic and sport scholarships to the most talented students.
The Mayor’s competition for the best thesis dedicated to economic issues enjoys high popularity. Master’s, engineer’s, bachelor’s and doctor’s theses relating to broad-based economic development of Lublin can be entered for the competition, defended no earlier than 2012. It is a unique opportunity for the winners, as in addition to the valuable and prestigious prize of PLN 6,000, the winning thesis may reach a large audience and have a real influence on the development of Lublin and the activities of the City Office. It is also worth noting that when doing research for the thesis, the authors can count on support from the Lublin City Office.
Another initiative which the City Office targets at Lublin’s academic community is the Municipal Scholarship Scheme for students. Under the scheme, exceptionally gifted undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students living in the Municipality of Lublin are provided with financial support in the form of scholarships. Students seeking the award of such a scholarship carry on scientific or artistic activities that may contribute to the development of Lublin and the region or have a significant contribution to the development of science. All the scholarship holders have outstanding educational results.
