AMMAN — Jordan and Russia on Monday examined the possibility of increasing the number of Russian government-funded grants for Jordanian students.

During a meeting between Higher Education Minister Amin Mahmoud and Russia’s Ambassador to Jordan Boris Bolotin, talks focused on ways to boost academic cooperation.

They also discussed problems related to certificate accreditation.

The Russian government has issued a decision to increase the number of scholarships extended to foreign students and this raises Jordan’s annual share, Bolotin said.
