Educational grants comes in different forms. It could be an educational interest-free loan, a partial educational funding by a governmental or a non governmental body, or an outright scholarship. Whatever might be the form, the purpose is the same, which is to completely remove or augment the financial burden from the student during studies.
The study program could be a college degree, university degree, or a post graduate degree. Some countries have a stand-by section of the government that provides educational grants to deserving candidates, while in some countries, especially the developing countries, it only exists in the framework, but hardly implemented.
There are also some special organizations that provide educational grants to students from developing and poor countries. These are usually in the form of charity and goodwill, designed to provide educational financing to bright students from poor families which, otherwise, could not have afforded the cost of education for the child. These usually come in the form of scholarships, which requires the candidate to meet some set criteria, to remove abuse of the program.
For foreign students studying in Ukraine, there are no educational grants to be expected from the Ukrainian government. Such grants existed during the Soviet era. However, students could apply for available international study grants from independent and international organizations. Deserving and successful students will be rewarded with part or total funding of their education.
Unfortunately, Ukraine has no scholarship provisions or grants for international students. Every international student planning to study in Ukraine should be ready to fully foot their academic bills. Disregard the misleading adverts by some companies about available scholarships. Ukraine has never had such provision since becoming a sovereign nation.
