In order to ensure social protection of military personnel, strengthen the morale of families, at the headquarter of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Uzbekistan, a ceremony was held to award their children with preferential recommendations for admission to higher education.
It should be noted that in accordance with the requirements of the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated May 14, 2018 “On additional measures for social support of servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Uzbekistan and their families” it was planned to give preferential recommendations on starting from the 2018/2019 academic year, a five percent quota for admission to the bachelor’s degree in higher education for children of employees of ministries and departments of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Uzbekistan and non-competitive admission to the bachelor’s degree of higher education institutions for the children of employees who died or became disabled in the line of duty. In the past period alone, recommendations have been issued to the children of about 980 military personal serving in the Ministry of Defense.
At the ceremony, 30 young men and women who had the same opportunity were solemnly given recommendations on admission to the bachelor’s degree in higher education on the basis of a five percent quota.
– Obviously, it was a surprise for me to be considered worthy of this recommendation, – says Azizbek Sabirov. – Of course, I think that the children of our servicemen deserve such recommendations. We thank the President of our country for such opportunities created for young people and promise to use them in the future to become mature professionals in our field.
In addition, a series of measures are being taken across the country to provide recommendations for the children of servicemen to enter higher education on a quota basis.
The ceremonies are directly attended by the commanders of the military districts and their deputies, commanders of the military units, servicemen and members of their families.
