Every year the Lithuanian Ministry of Education and Science offers scholarships for full-time Master degree studies in Lithuania. In total, 70 such scholarships are offered this year for citizens of 10 countries as well as foreign citizens of Lithuanian origin. The Centre for Asian Studies encourages everyone eligible for Lithuanian state scholarship to use this opportunity to gain high quality Master degree education at Vytautas Magnus University. The deadline for application is May 10, 2017.
One of the most attractive programs available for foreign students is East Asia Region Studies (EARS) program which during its 10 year history had a number of students who came to Kaunas thanks to state scholarships. EARS is the only graduate programme in Lithuania and the Baltic States that is taught in English and focused on East Asian contemporary politics and society. The two-year Master’s degree program is mainly concentrated on modern political, social and economic issues of East Asian countries, i.e. Korea, Japan and China, but also provides possibility for students to study region’s culture, history, traditions, religions, as well as to learn region’s languages.
