SCHOLARSHIP: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS !
 Why scholarships are different, even despite the fact that students learn in the same group?
 The scholarship is under indexation. It is very simple to describe this process: if in the country for a certain month there is inflation (the consumer price index on a monthly basis is officially established by the State Committee of statistics of Ukraine), then the amount of the scholarship is increased to the corresponding index .
Thus, the total amount of the scholarship is influenced by the following: the year of entry, the time  a scholarship assigned and breaks between assignments. Those who first became a scholar (e.g., first-year students) or reinstated their right to scholarships (for example, students who lost the right to the appointment of academic scholarships, and then successfully passed semester control), the scholarship is indexed on the base of growing total since the month the scholarship assignment.
 Why has the scholarship decreased despite the increase since 1 September 2015?
 General scholarship is reduced by the amount of indexation.
In accordance with paragraph 9 of the Concluding provisions of the law of Ukraine of 28.12.2014, № 80-VIII "About the State budget of Ukraine for 2015" is stipulated that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine should approve a special order of carrying out indexation of cash incomes of the population (including scholarships) within the financial resources of budgets of all levels for 2015.
The government has developed a draft law on improvement of the regulatory framework of the current mechanism of indexation of the scholarship. The bill will come into force after a certain procedure of preparation of documents of this level, including the coordination of trade unions.
