Since 2010, the Boris and Inara Teterev Foundation has provided support to Riga Stradiņš University with the objective of fostering the development of the most talented emerging specialists and raising the quality of studies.

Under the auspices of this collaboration, Philanthropist Boris Teterev’s Grant in Medicine was established to support diligent medical students, whose study opportunities are limited by financial considerations, or whose outstanding achievements during the course of their studies to date merit special recognition. 

“Competitive medicine is a cornerstone of public health and welfare. Our contribution to the excellence of RUS students is an investment in the development of our country and people. We hope that the recipients of our grants will join the ranks of Latvia’s best doctors,” explained philanthropist and Riga Stradiņš University (then known as – the Riga Institute of Medicine) graduate Boris Teterev, congratulating the recipients of the 2017 grants.

Grants are awarded, in accordance with a competitive procedure, to 3rd and 4th year undergraduate students. They amount to EUR 375 monthly until the completion of undergraduate studies, as well as a laptop computer to help grant recipients with their studies.

The purpose of the Boris and Inara Teterev Foundation’s RSU study programme modernisation target grant is to foster the development of new innovative study courses at the RSU, as well as the improvement of existing study courses, integrating appropriate methodological solutions. These grants are intended for academic personnel working on healthcare study programmes. More information is available in on the RSU website.

The purpose of the Boris and Inara Teterev Foundation’s international experience integration target grant is to increase the number of foreign guest lecturers at Riga Stradiņš University. Lectures, practical activities, consultations and the development of materials required for study courses may be incorporated during the grant period. These target grants are intended for healthcare study programmes and to improve the competence of academic personnel lecturing in them.
