Scholarships for study in Russia


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 2017, 15000 such spots were granted.

The government scholarship includes:

  • 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 2017, an average scholarship amounted to 1,500 roubles a month (approximately USD 25)
  • Dormitory accommodation (if available)

The government scholarship does not include:

  • Travel costs
  • Living expenses
  • Voluntary health insurance policy
