Students 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.

  • Free tuition for the entire duration of the chosen programme;
  • Maintenance allowance (for the entire duration of study regardless of the candidate’s success). In 2018, an average scholarship amounted to 1,630 roubles a month (approximately USD 25);
  • Dormitory accommodation (if available).

The government scholarship does not include:

  • Travel costs;
  • Living expenses;
  • Voluntary health insurance policy.
