Each year the Russian Federation awards a number of state scholarships to students from foreign countries in accordance with specifically defined quotas. A state scholarship covers all education-related expenditure, hall of residence rent, and medical care. The monthly payment is the same as for Russian students and is presently RBL 75 000 per month. State scholarships for foreign students cover tuition fees, since such "quota place" foreign students should not be required to pay tuition fees.
A foreign student needs at least an extra USD 50 per month in order to be able to cover the expected cost of living. Furthermore, the student, or a national agency, must pay for travel to and from the Russian Federation and to and from the location of the higher education institution.
Fee-paying students are responsible for all the above costs. They must reckon on requiring between USD 3 000 and USD 10 000 per annum, depending on their academic discipline and on the institution.
