International scholarship "Bolashak"


Bolashak International Scholarship was established on November 5, 1993 by the Decree of President of the Republic of Kazakhstan N. A. Nazarbayev.

The purpose of the program is the staff training to the priority sectors of the nation economy. The program includes both a scientific degree of higher educational institutions and scientific and industrial internships in leading companies and universities around the world.

At the dawn of independence, the Republic of Kazakhstan needed highly-qualified professionals capable to conduct further reforms and worthily represent the country at the international arena.

For the first time in history of the post-Soviet countries, talented Kazakhstani youth got a chance to study abroad.

Bolashak Scholarship has become some kind of guarantor of successful career growth and professional self-realization of its graduates.

In 2008 access to Program has been expanded due to the necessity of increase of rural education’s level (“rural youth” category had been established), state machinery reform (“civil servants” category), and development of scientific-research potential of the country (“research and teaching staff for master programs” and “research staff for fellowships” categories).

As a result of a stable and purposeful policy of Program’s implementation process improvement, at the VIII International Going Global Conference in Miami in 2014, Bolashak Scholarship has been named the best one among 11 academic mobility programs.

During the period from 2012 to present days international scholarship Bolashak has been granted to 39 people from teaching staff and 8 master students of S. Seifullin Kazakh Agro Technical University (KATU) for study in 25 best universities of 13 countries.

Thus, teaching staff and master students of KATU were training under Bolashak program in universities of Great Britain, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Malaysia, Japan, China, South Korea, Italy, the USA, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
