Scholarships for foreign student education in Russian universities are ensured by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. This line of acceptation is based on the inter-governmental agreements in which the education in Russian universities at the expense of Russian budget is anticipated. The students accepted on the basis of the Russian scholarships have a free education and the accommodation fee and medical insurance are covered similar to Russian students. These foreign students have the monthly scholarships from Russian budget as well as from the native Embassy. The educational quota for each country is defined annually, and the selection of candidates is fulfilled by the sending country with the account of the applicant talent and the necessity for the country the chosen specialty. The list of selected candidates and their documents are directed by the national Ministry of Education through the Embassy in Moscow to the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, where these documents are investigated and sent to various Russian universities. These universities have got the information about the foreign candidates only after the final decision on their acceptation made by the Russian Ministry. These foreign students are accepted into these universities in accordance with the order of the Russian Ministry of Education and Sciences.
It is rather difficult for the foreign citizens to be included into this scholarship line of acceptation and the final decision depends on the national and Russian Ministries of Education. The accepted foreign students at first study Russian language and then, after successful pass through the exams, enter to Bachelor course (or at Master or Ph.D. course). The education is provided in Russian medium in accordance with the Russian Educational Standards. At poor education results or at disturbing of Russian Regulations, the student is eliminated from the university, and looses the right to be educated on the basis of Russian scholarships.
