Scholarships to Study Abroad Funded by the Budget

The idea of ​​the project in our country arose quite a long time ago and belongs to the Russians – Harvard graduates. Since 2011, the Program has been supervised by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives.

In December 2013, Vladimir Putin signed a decree “On measures to strengthen the human resources of the Russian Federation”, where the project received official status, and the government – the task to work out the working conditions of the Program. The main provisions of the Program are contained in the Government decree “On measures of social support for Russian citizens who independently enrolled in leading foreign educational organizations” dated June 20, 2014. The document contains the goals and objectives of the Program, conditions, and algorithms for its implementation. The operator of the Program is the Skolkovo Moscow School of Management.

The goal of the project is to prepare highly qualified specialists for the needs of priority sectors of the economy, science, industry, and the social sphere.

Many countries of the world have the experience of sending their citizens to study at foreign universities with the subsequent return to their homeland. China is leading in this regard, where up to 30% of students are sent to study abroad in Europe and the United States. Brazil has a large-scale project Science Without Borders (Ciências em Fronteiras), in which about 100,000 students can study abroad in programs in science, technology, mathematics, and the arts.
