Mogilev City Hall has introduced a special scholarship designed to support young and gifted people of sport, the city’s sports and culture department told Interfax.
They are planning to hand out up to 60 scholarships for local sports school students with outstanding sporting performance, the officials informed.
The city budget is expected to apportion to that end up to BYR 8 million on a monthly basis.
For young sports people with bright prospects proper nutrition is just as important as adequate gear, they said.
