In the Ministry of education has introduced a new scholarship system

The Ministry of education introduced a new rating approach to determination of scholarships being granted to students.

The Ministry of education and science of Ukraine presented a new system of provision of scholarships, the press service of the Ministry.

Will receive a scholarship, not all students average four per session, and those that ranked high in the ranking compiled by Universities, said the Minister of education and science, Liliya Hrynevych.

“This brand new rating approach to determining scholarships, to be students. Namely, each INSTITUTION will develop its own criteria for ranking, which will be approved by the academic Council of the University on a binding agreement with the student government of the University,” − said Grinevich.

Provides that 90% of the place in the ranking will determine academic performance, and 10%, the criteria which will determine the Universities.

This will help to determine the most successful students even if the results of the session they all received the same average score.

“Right now the draft budget includes 2,978 billion on social grants and 2 billion in academic scholarships. We propose to transfer 1.7 billion UAH of social scholarships for the academic that will not only fully Fund the increased social grants, but to ensure the payment of increased scholarships for almost half of the students”, − said the Minister.

50% of students who receive scholarships, it is expected that 43 percent will receive academic scholarships on the rating system, and the social will to 7%.

Thus for higher educational institutions III-IV accreditation level minimum stipend will be at the level of 1100 UAH, which is by 33.4% more than last year.

The best students will receive scholarships to 72.9% more than now − 1600grn, i.e. the subsistence level.

The minimum scholarship for University students I-II level of accreditation will be 830 UAH, and for students in vocational − 415 UAH.

The authorities gave the money to the centers of the tractor and seamstresses

At the same time, more than 100% increase of the scholarship for the best students for challenging professions, where it is difficult to obtain a high score.

In particular we are talking about natural and mathematical pedagogy (teachers of chemistry, physics, biology, etc.) and other mathematical, natural and engineering degrees.

For them, scholarship in the Universities of III-IV level of accreditation will be 2036 UAH, in Universities I-II levels of accreditation − 1536 UAH.

The Ministry of education introduced the algorithm, which will be the transition from the current system of scholarship to a new.

“It’s simple, if the students pass the winter session in December, a scholarship under the new rules they will receive in January 2017, and if the session in January − a new scholarship will be in February, these students will receive in January a scholarship under the old rules,” − said Grinevich.

Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Marchenko at the meeting noted that the draft Resolution is conducted very quickly, so the delay in the transition to a new system of scholarships should not be.

It is important that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted in time for next year’s budget, because without this document, the new rules will not take effect.

Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Finance proposed the Ministry of education to cancel the scholarship for students, which averages about 830 USD.

The education Ministry said that students will not cancel the scholarship, however, the payment algorithm can be revised.
