Every student with up to 150,000 social rating points will receive a full state-funded compensation for one semester tuition fees in the 2021 academic year. In addition, every student with up to 150,000 social rating points and suspended student status due to failure to cover tuition fees will receive a 2,250-GEL compensation for 2020-2021 tuition fees from the state. Overall, more than 33,000 students will benefit throughout Georgia, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated at today’s Cabinet meeting.

According to the Prime Minister, the Government must do everything to prevent recession from affecting the process of educating youth.

“I would like to emphasize that the main target groups of phase three under the Government’s social assistance effort consists of our young people, because we must do everything to prevent recession from affecting the process of educating youth. We will do everything to enable families, whose incomes have decreased because of recession, to provide their children with a decent upbringing and education,” Giorgi Gakharia said.

According to him, the main principle will involve the prudent and fair allocation of the country’s limited economic resources.

“It is already clear that this economic crisis will last quite a while. Of course, we will continue caring for and standing by our citizens. Our key guiding principle, as usual, will involve the prudent and fair allocation of the country’s limited economic resources,” Giorgi Gakharia underlined.
