Lew Sapieha Award

The Lew Sapieha Award, granted under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland, is given in recognition of the winners' great merits in the shaping and development of civil society in Belarus and in building an independent and democratic Belarus, open to Europe and respecting the best historical traditions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and in building and development of civil society in Central and Eastern Europe.

The initiative to establish the Award in 2006 came from the Centre for East European Studies of the University of Warsaw and the Eastern Europe College in Wrocław, which were joined and supported by the University of Warsaw, the Jagiellonian University and the Universities of Poznań, Wrocław and Białystok. The main concept of the Award is that the Laureates will give visit lectures about Belarus during the academic year at various universities, where they will be offered good living and working conditions, and the opportunity to realise their potential as lecturers and to make Polish students familiar with Belarusian issues. If a Laureate writes a book as a result of the stay, it will be published.

The Secretariat of the Chapter of the Lew Sapieha Award is located at the Centre for East European Studies of the University of Warsaw.
