Last update: 06.04.2020

Every year thousands of educational grants in Kazakhstan are provided for students. Educational grant gives not only an opportunity to get free higher education, but also to get monthly payment of cash benefits to a student, in other words -scholarships. Scholarship size depends on many factors which we will describe below.

Types of scholarships in educational institutions

First of all, please note that the scholarship is paid to the students of higher education institutions (HEI)  as well as to the students  of professional technic institutions ( PTI, colleges).

Types of state scholarships:

  1. Minimal state scholarship (we will call it a general one);
  2. Enhanced state scholarship;
  3. Presidential state scholarship (available only for students of higher education institutions).

To get scholarships, students must have a payment card. It takes 45 days to produce a payment card. Nowadays, for producing of payment card it’s just enough to have an ID card. One can open a payment card at any regulated banks at the discretion of the student. If on the first month of studying in educational institutions you still do not have a payment card, or it is in the process of producing, you can get a scholarship at the box office of the institution.

Minimal state grant

If you have become an owner of an educational scholarship, first time you will be charged a general (minimal) scholarship till the end of the first semester. The scholarship is charged every month and at the end of the month. According to the results of the first examination session, if the student has "excellent" and "good" marks, he(she) has an opportunity to get scholarships in future. If the student has "excellent" and "good" marks according to the results of passed exams, next semester his scholarship will increase on 15 %. Scholarship during summer holidays period is paid total of two months (July , August), of course if the student has "good" and "excellent " marks  for the summer session exams. Scholarship is charged at the end of July.

Payment of state scholarships is terminated:

  • in the case of expulsion (exclusion) of the student from the organization of education, regardless of the reasons for the expulsion (exclusion);
  • in case of death of the student;
  • after completion of studies from the date of issue of the order on release.
