MOSCOW, January 13. /ITAR-TASS World Service/. Vladimir Putin has signed an ordinance on considerable state material support for Russian students, who entered foreign universities, Moskovsky Komsomolets writes. The support measures and a list of universities are to be offered by the government within three months.
The presidential order contains major conditions for the social support to Russian students: Russian citizenship, full-time courses, a high status of the foreign university and a competition for obtaining the support.
Another important condition for receiving support from the government would be the student’s employment with a Russian company. Deputy Minister of Education and Sciences Alexander Klimov told the newspaper the state allowances “will include tuition payment and accompanying expenses (transport fares to the university, accommodation, food, medical insurance, educational literature). We plan the tuition expenses per one person would not be above 1.5 million rubles (about $45,000). If the training course is above one year, the payments are extended accordingly.”
The list of universities may include 200 leading foreign institutions in 23 countries, Klimov said.
The deputy minister said the program would support 3,000 students over 2014-2016. The project’s objective is to attract to the Russian economy the specialists, trained in best foreign universities. They will be obliged to work at least three years in Russian companies.
