Education, Science and Sport Minister Algirdas Monkevicius has signed an order to prove funding for the Ukrainians' studies.

Up to 15 Ukrainians can apply for state-funding for university studies after completing secondary education in Lithuania.

War-affected children from Ukraine have been given access to education in Lithuania since 2014, based on the government's resolution on funding and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.

Fifteen children from Luhansk and Donetsk are enrolled in Vilniaus Lietuviu Namai (Vilnius Lithuanians' House) annually. The Lithuanian government pays for the Ukrainian children's education and accommodation.
