The Ministry of Science and Higher Education sets from time to time a quota of scholarships for persons undergoing education in Poland under international agreements or under decision of the minister responsible for higher education. Foreign students' scholarship applications falling within the quota are transmitted by Polish consular/diplomatic missions to the Bureau for Academic Recognition and International Exchange. From there, the applications are reviewed by the Bureau's Section for Recruitment and Education of Foreigners in Poland. The final decision is taken by the Minister of Science and Higher Education.

In each case the HEIs involved agree the rules for granting scholarships. A foreign student seeking a scholarship in Poland must meet specific inter-school exchange requirements. Some HEIs have their own scholarship programs.
