Russia Scholarships for international students
Russia Scholarships for international students (university graduates) who are completing internships in programmes of additional vocational education (professional training or career advancement) do not receive a maintenance allowance, but do receive accommodation in the dormitory of their university.
Certain groups of foreigners, Russians living abroad and immigrants can apply for state scholarships on the same terms as Russian citizens once they pass entrance exams or Uniform State Examination (EGE).
Moreover, every year Russian government provides so-called ‘state-funded spots’ at universities to international applicants. In 2018, 15,000 such spots were granted.
The government scholarship includes:
1. Free tuition for the entire duration of the chosen programme;
2. Maintenance allowance (for the entire duration of study regardless of the candidate’s success). In 2018, an average scholarship amounted to 20000 roubles a month;
3. Dormitory accommodation (if available).
