Outstanding Students Receive President’s Scholarship



President Elbegdorj issued a decree, founding upon the pertinent provisions of the Law of Mongolia on Education on granting President’s and Prime Minister’s Scholarships to the outstanding students for their academic achievements. Some 28 students of 11 universities and institutes received the President’s Scholarship.

In his speech at the ceremony of awarding the scholarship, President noted:”The President’s Scholarship for Best Students for 2010 marks the achievements of students studying in natural sciences, in technical and technological spheres of academic study. As the Head of State of Mongolia, I work to ensure that all Mongolians obtain full and competitive education, and that our education system attains world class standards and benchmarks. It is particularly important that higher education is accessible and affordable for general youth. Today, when many Mongolian families live under enormous economic challenges, the inability to pay education tuition is akin to loosing dreams for many Mongolians”.
