Under the honorary patronage of prof. Arkadiusz Mężyk, chairman of the Conference of Rectors of Academic Schools in Poland (KRASP).

It is the twelfth time that we are concluding the Interstudent competition, in which we award the best foreign students studying at Polish universities. We are looking - as every year - for ambitious people, good students, but most of all for active, committed people who build bridges between cultures. And every year, thanks to cooperation with universities, we find many excellent candidates. Although in the last two years this task has become more difficult, we have managed to show foreign students who, despite the fears and difficulties resulting from the epidemic, stayed in our country.

They study, work socially, get involved in the life of their communities. They are an example for colleagues and ambassadors of Polish universities in their countries. The Competition Jury, led by prof. Jerzy Lis, chairman of the Committee for International Cooperation of KRASP, rector of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, awarded prizes traditionally in three basic categories: bachelor's studies, master's studies and doctoral studies. The jury also awarded a Special Prize for special achievements and commitment to social activities.
