  • 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.
