According to the Center for International Programs, there are other options of receiving free education abroad except for Bolashak program. The Center will offer some other scholarships starting from this year.

- The Center has the extensive experience in cooperation with foreign universities and therefore we know the peculiarities of each country. We know better universities. Our main goal now is not only administration of Bolashak scholarship but also encouraging young people to receive high class education abroad.
Zhandos Amantayev is one of those who utilized this chance. He has done Master’s degree as part of German scholarship program. He received an unconditional letter from the University a month after the application. At present, Zhandos is developing several start-ups.
ZHANDOS AMANTAYEV, ENTREPRENEUR:
- You don’t have to be a super genius to get foreign education. The intention and desire is enough. You need to love your profession in order to succeed. I am participating in the competition organized by the National Chamber of Entrepreneurs ‘Atameken’. We are lucky to have the state support and a chance to unlock our potential in projects like this.
Center for International programs has helped several school students to choose their future professions. The Center is planning to increase the number of scholarships for Kazakh students and expand cooperation.
