Support for Diaspora and Lithuanian-Origin Foreigners
From 26 August until 30 September, the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of the Diaspora and people of Lithuanian origin may request support of the State Studies Foundation.
Higher education students who meet the aforementioned requirements may receive two kinds of financial support: a scholarship and/or social payment. The support is allocated in the form of half-yearly competitions for the autumn and spring semesters.
The Diaspora and Lithuanian-origin foreigners studying at Lithuanian higher education schools may request state support for the 2013 autumn semester by registering on the website of State Studies Foundation, filling in the application and sending the required documents by mail or delivering them to the State Studies Foundation until 30 September. The required documents must confirm the applicant’s social status and his Lithuanian origin or identity as a Diaspora member.
The selected applicants will be informed by e-mail. More information about the support is provided by phone at (+370 5) 263 9158 and on the website of the State Studies Foundation.
