The Queen Jadwiga Fund was established to commemorate the grand decision of the Queen who bequeathed her entire private wealth to restore the Kraków Academy and thus initiated 600 years of scholarly and teaching activity of the Jagiellonian University. The aim of the Fund is to aid scholars and PhD students from Central-Eastern Europe, former Soviet Union and the Balkan area, who plan to conduct their research in Kraków. The original creators of the Fund hope that this initiative will lead to closer ties between scholars from this part of Europe.

The fund is financed by donations from individual benefactors and companies. The initiators hope it will accumulate enough capital to achieve financial independence in the future.

The scholarship value is 1500 PLN. The recipients are provided with accommodation in a double room in a student dormitory and basic healthcare during their stay.
