Today at the meeting of the Government chaired by the Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev, the Minister of Education and Science, Yerlan Sagadiyev, talked about the activities of the Roadmap on the implementation of the five social initiatives of the Head of State.

As reported by Y. Sagadiyev, the prepared Roadmap for the implementation of these tasks is ready and proposals for additional educational grants as a draft resolution were sent to the ministries, Atameken NCE and the higher educational institutions.

For this project, 11 thousand grants are allocated for technical specialties, 5 thousand grants for other specialties, 3 thousand grants for Master’s degree programs and 1 thousand grants for PhD.

The minister also noted that the Ministry of Education and Science held several meetings with banks, universities, construction companies, the National Bank, the Ministries of Finance and Economy on dormitory construction.

"A university or a construction company, if they do not have land, should take it from the akimat or buy it. To begin with, we need to make the project design of the dormitory. In that project, it should be indicated how many places the facility will be built for," Y. Sagadiyev noted.

After the preparation of the project, the second step is the conclusion of an agreement between the Ministry and the Financial Center for the places.

"Now 200 thousand tenge on average is paid for eight years for one bed-place. We offer such subsidies, if we build at the expense of the state, then in five years we will use 225 billion tenge, and if we approve the offered scheme, we will use only 20 billion tenge," Y. Sagadiyev suggested.

According to the minister, the preliminary scheme for the dormitory construction has already been agreed with the second-tier banks, universities, developers, the Ministry of Finance and the National Bank. STBs confirm the sufficient size of tenge liquidity. Thus, universities on the basis of agreements can get a loan from a bank, attract a construction company and in the future build a dormitory.

"The construction of dormitories should be included in the Nurly Zher program. In universities, especially state universities, there is a necessary territory, we ask the akimats at their level to provide land plots to universities and to solve the issues of bringing relevant communications," Y. Sagadiyev concluded.
