The sum of the application should arise from: a) participation cost, b) transportation cost c) accommodation cost (if not included in participation costs) – for the stay up to 2 weeks it is allowed to apply for the refund of the hotel price (hotel allowances), above this time  ¼ outright d) global price of stay (stay allowances) in the max. amount of PLN 2500 a month.
