Vilnius University established the Grand Duchy of Lithuania scholarships for Belarusians

Seeking to express solidarity with the people of Belarus and supporting the democratic aspirations of the citizens of the neighbouring country, Vilnius University (VU) established the Grand Duchy of Lithuania scholarships for the most gifted applicants from Belarus.

Belarussian applicants will be able to choose between both bachelor’s and master’s study programmes at Vilnius University. All the costs of their studies will be covered by the university, while the most talented students will be paid a monthly grant of EUR 200 in the first year of their studies. Entrants will be able to apply for scholarship until September 14. Vilnius University will also offer the opportunity for Belarusian students who are persecuted for civil and political reasons to transfer their studies to VU.
