From fighter to a student grant

From soldier to student one grantRussian news agencies spread information that the Ministry of Defense of Russian Federation has prepared a draft law on how to improve the attractiveness of compulsory military service for young people with Russian passports. In this project, namely, states that soldiers undergoing military service, will be able to receive monetary grants training in municipal universities, would also enjoy the benefits when applying for a municipal service civilian character.

On the one hand the initiative of the Ministry of Defence looks good impartial, it is no secret that even with a decrease in the period of compulsory military service prestige of the service itself, to the chagrin of bolshennomu, remains at a low level in the country. Noble duty obviously not all perceived specifically respectable. In this context, the allocation of grants for admission to universities and training, including and abroad, is also the best position to be in when trying to gosdolzhnosti can play a very positive role.

But there is, as usual, and the other side of the issue. In this way it can be called such, as mysterious as the flip side of the moon — so its a good look, will have much to sweat, sweat with the very Ministry of Defence, which we are actively sweating somehow not very accustomed to … So now, the complexity of the issue here is in where Anatoly Serdyukov and the financial part of his agency would take funds for the project so fundamental?

To understand the magnitude of the costs, you can bring the next number. Now Russian army conscripts are a total of about 300 thousand difficulties fighter (Fall call 2011 — about 140 thousand people, vernal call 2012 — about 155 thousand people). If to assume that the vast majority of people who had not managed to graduate to appeal zahochut get it after his military service, the allocation of only foreign grants Russian Federation Government poured out a lot of money.

There is still necessary to determine, to what extent, these grants will have to give. For example, the price of years of study at Voronezh State University (on a paid full-time) now ranges from 40 000 ("Political Science", "Computer Science", "History") to 125-130 thousand ("Electronics and Nanoelectronics", "Information Systems and Technology). Part-time education at the same university paid in the range from 21 thousand to 66.5 thousand rubles per year. This speak out so that provincial university. But many may be willing to get an education only in the capital's most prestigious universities. For example, the town of Moscow Bauman Moscow State Technical University offers options for tuition at a cost of 60 thousand to 190 thousand rubles a year …

In other words, that the demobilized conscripts managed to get an education, the Ministry of Defence will have to fork out considerably. If the average price, it turns out that only one soldier in higher education will have to issue a grant for the year at the rate of about 80 thousand rubles (400 thousand in 5 years). A if extrapolate this amount to everyone, you may just get an astronomical total of 20 billion rubles a year (and this, again, on average).

Of course, you can read about what might grand from the Ministry of Defence will be issued for paid training options, and a few other purposes, and to go to university "muster" should be without the help of others — on the basis of the USE only on the basis of free . But if so, then it is completely visible thought the Defense Ministry. Of course, after serving in the army is unlikely to wait that fighter will make its best performance in the delivery of EGE — all the same in the service does not solve trigonometric equations … And if you will not do better, then go to university it will be much more difficult. It turns out that to go to university without some kind of patronage on the part of the country will manage a very small percentage of former conscripts. Then, and even for the issuance of educational grants may be useful where a more moderate budget than indicated above 20 billion rubles per year. But that's only a limited ability to be entering high school inventory to increase the prestige of military service — not a simple question.

Of course, the government longs to add some social significance to the people who honestly fulfilled its own duty to the homeland. This joyful. But before we talk about the bills, there must be good to weigh the "pros" and "cons." After all, we all know very well that we can promise so much that later would be difficult to carry out in general, but only a percentage of the promises is still very low. In one case, already in the process of implementation of the project revealed that funding dries up, the other — it appears that the project is not at all and was not appropriate. Because in the case considered, before cheerfully applauded the decision of the Ministry of Defence for everyone conscripts distribute grants for higher education, it is necessary to wait for the actual steps that will lead to the result.

All we had from the bill prior to the implementation of the adopted law sometimes abyss …
