“I completely agree. And the prestige of the engineering professions is already the efforts of the state aimed at raising the prestige of the engineering professions, showing the significance of this activity for the state, for the country,” the head of state said.
“Nominal scholarships, of course. We have such a scholarship named after Sergei Korolev, of course, in demand. Let’s do it,” he added. Putin said at a meeting with leaders of advanced engineering schools.
One of the participants in the meeting of the President with the heads of advanced engineering schools and their industrial partners suggested establishing nominal scholarships in honor of outstanding scientists for the most talented students, RIA Novosti reports.
In addition, by the end of 2022, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education will work out the issue of establishing a special scholarship for students studying philosophy.
