The Lithuanian government will allocate funding for 100 Belarusians to be able to study free of charge in Lithuania, the country's Ministry of Education, Science and Sport said.

Education, Science and Sport Minister Algirdas Monkevicius signed a related order today.

"Assistance for studies in Lithuania is both specific and also symbolic assistance of our nation to the people of Belarus in this very difficult time for them," the minister said.

State funds will be used to cover the whole period of studies.

Under a competition procedure, up to 100 students will be eligible for state assistance every year, based on their enrollment results. Higher schools will be required to inform the ministry about accepted Belarusian students by October 15. Upon receipt of that information, the minister will approve the number of students eligible for state funding.

Such assistance will be provided under the Lithuanian government's assistance plan for Belarusian people.
