The Finance Ministry plans to reduce the number of recipients of scholarships, but to increase them

This was stated by Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Marchenko in comments VoxConnector, writes “Economic truth”.

“We are not going to reduce the scholarship, we want to increase it. At 15% academic scholarship the scholarship can be at the level of the minimum wage and the subsistence minimum. We can get out of the subsistence level (in 2018 is expected to reach 1.7 thousand UAH) and closer to the minimum wage (2018 – 3723 UAH). That is, the level must be sufficient to ensure that this scholarship was sufficient to be able to live comfortably,” – said the Deputy Minister.

The final decision should be for the Ministry of education and science.

“We will insist that they change the percent of fellows and determined the amount of the scholarship at a higher level than in 2017. We had such an agreement with the Ministry of education that by 2020, we level the scholarship will reduce to 15%”, – said Marchenko.
