Four Scholarships Secured from the Russian Federation

Students pursuing degree studies in the Russian FederationAntigua St. John's - Antiguan and Barbudan students will get an opportunity to pursue degree studies in the Russian Federation with the granting of four scholarships by the government for studies commencing in September 2014.

Prime Minister the Hon. W. Baldwin Spencer today announced that he has received communication from Ambassador Vladimir Polenov of the Russian Embassy in Jamaica following discussions during a recent visit to Antigua and Barbuda on the subject of strengthening the relations between both countries including the granting of scholarships to qualified Antiguans and Barbudans.
“Ambassador Polenov during our discussions indicated that his government is very supportive of the UPP Administration’s drive to provide university level education to our citizens and for the fifth year running, his government has granted scholarships to Antigua and Barbuda,” said Prime Minister Spencer.

The scholarships in the Russian Federation are available for study in Architecture, Nursing Care, Engineering and Technology Construction, Political Science and Visual and Applied Arts.
Speaking on behalf of students pursuing studies in the Russian Federation, Political Science major, Kemal Nicholson said that the experience of studying in the Russian Federation, while being a challenge at times has proven to be exciting for students.
“It has not been easy adjusting to the change in weather, culture and learning the Russian Language, which is key to our success here, but we all are committed to succeeding and making our country and families proud.  Many of our parents would not have been able to afford university level education for us, therefore this opportunity granted to us is appreciated and invaluable,” Nicholson said.
Application forms for the Russian scholarship programme are available at the Office of the Prime Minister and will remain available until 11th April, 2014.

Be careful with your relations with Vladimir Putin and his Political Science courses. He is still a commie like some in our government.
