Persons, who have obtained a master's degree and want to continue to use the resources of PLGrid infrastructure (with Subordinate affiliation), are asked to add their Supervisor to the team with the Manager role.
PhD students are asked that their grant name suggests a doctoral dissertation, e.g. by adding "PhD" to the grant name.
Students writing diploma theses (of various degrees) are requested not to submit proper grants applications (such applications will be rejected), but to use grants for diploma theses established by their Supervisors.
Supervisors of students writing theses/student projects are asked to set up separate grants for their students for their students' diploma calculations and other projects. Such a grant does not require further justification, apart from providing basic information, including field of study and topics of work to be created on its basis. Supervisor should create one grant for all his/her Subordinates, thus gaining easy access to knowledge about the progress of their students' work. The grant for thesis/student projects is settled with the work created on its basis.
In order to obtain a resource grant user must specify their requirements, clusters they are interested in and justify their need for resources.

|End date - Data zakończenia|
Date until which you want to use the grant resources.
It is best if grant duration is at most one year. Otherwise the resource administrators reserve the right to shorten the grant duration time.
|Grant is a continuation of a previous one|

In case you want to continue research started in a previous grant (the topics are the same but the old grant has expired) tick this option. Using it may help shorten the allocation process.
Provide ID of the previous grant in the next field. You may also copy the old grant's description.
|Preferred clusters - Preferowane ośrodki dla grantu|
Pick a cluster (or clusters) where you want to conduct your research at - write its name using the following cluster list:
Administrators of the sites you picked will be asked to provide resources - they may, but do not have to do it.

|Expected results - Spodziewany rezultat badań||User should provides information about planned publications, posters or conferences where you will share the research results.|
|Middleware - Sposób korzystania z grantu (middleware)|
