USMU accepting Global Education program applicants

Ural State Medical University (USMU) recently opened its State Scholarship Program for a Global Education.

The scholarship program, which is meant to improve the employability of Russian students,  will provide more than $26,000 to recipients each year. This figure includes tuition and related expenses, including textbooks, health insurance, accommodations, airfare and meals.

Once scholarship winners complete their training, they are required to work in only Russian organizations for a minimum of three years.

Individuals interested in science, engineering, education, management, medicine or post-graduate residencies are welcome to apply. Applicants must have higher education, no criminal record, Russian citizenship and fluency in a foreign language.

One of the Global Education Program’s main supporters is the Centre for Educational Development of the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo. The  center has agreed to operate targeted training for students from Ural State Medical University as well as other leading international universities.
