– Thanks to monetary rewards for their successes, Amur schoolchildren have become more actively involved in the Olympiad movement. Thus, we can say that one of the goals that we pursued when approving the governor’s scholarships has been achieved, – said the Governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov. “By encouraging children for academic excellence, we contribute to the development of the region. High appreciation of students and cash payments are a good incentive and material support in order to gain deeper knowledge, take new training courses, and buy equipment. The regional government is interested in our youth staying to live and work in the Amur region, and every effort is being made for this.
The scholarship is of a personal nature and is paid in a lump sum for each title of the winner and (or) prize-winner of the regional and municipal stages of the Olympiad. Depending on the level of the event, the measure of support varies in the range of 10-50 thousand rubles.
Now the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren is taking place in the country, in which the Amur Region is represented by ten high school students at once. The children will demonstrate knowledge of astronomy, geography, history, Chinese, biology, mathematics, German, physical education, technology and literature.
Amur residents take the leading positions in the marathon of the All-Russian Olympiads annually. So, last year, an Amur schoolchild became a prize-winner in a test in French, in previous years, representatives of the Amur region were twice recognized as winners in the Chinese language, as well as prize-winners in technology, ecology, Russian language, and literature.
The scholarship is not paid immediately after the victory. This is a step-by-step process that involves time-consuming work with documents. So, last year, the winners and prize-winners of the Olympiad received nominal gubernatorial scholarships in September, the press service of the Amur Ministry of Education reports.
