Чи будуть гранти на освіту?

Today, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed a draft law on changes to the financing of higher education in the first reading.

The main provisions of the draft law:

📌 Some students will study at the expense of the state budget, and some will receive state grants for education. This does not imply a reduction in budget funds for the training of specialists with higher education, the procedure for distribution is changed.

📌 The state budget will be formed depending on the needs of the state. For key specialties (e.g., doctors, teachers, military, engineers, etc.), full budget support for training (on a competitive basis) is preserved. A system of guaranteed first job after graduation is also being introduced.

📌 The principle of “money follows the student”, according to which the student, not the university, receives funding, will be further developed. The student will receive a certain amount of money for education (grant) based on the results of the EIT / NMT.

The amount of the grant will be determined by the government, but within the established range of 15 to 50 thousand hryvnias. The most talented applicants will receive a grant that will cover all tuition costs, while co-financing will be applied to the rest.
