Transcarpathian Academy and College of Arts will keep joint state funding

This was reported on Tuesday, November 20th, by MP Robert Horvat

  In particular, Robert Horvat reminded that recently he, together with Valeriy Lunchchenko and Vasyl Petyovka, appealed to the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman with a request to amend the draft budget for 2019 to preserve the joint state financing for the Transcarpathian Academy of Arts and the Adalbert Erdelyi College of Arts.

The college was planned to be financed from the regional budget, which put at risk the future of the Academy of Arts and the whole cycle of training of young Transcarpathian artists. "Today, I can gladly announce that the Verkhovna Rada has already received the revised draft budget of Ukraine for 2019, which provides for the preservation of state funding of the College of Arts for the next year. Thus, the work of the Academy and the College, their common facilities and the training cycle will be preserved.

This week we can also expect the voting on the revised draft budget in the Verkhovna Rada," - Robert Horvat said.

 Recall that the initial draft budget for the next year provided for the transfer of the College as a higher education institution of the I-II level of accreditation without the status of a separate legal entity to financing from the regional budget. This move could have provoked the destruction of the material resources and damage to the educational process, loss of an integral complex of training of new generations of Transcarpathian artists. The shared sculptural, ceramic, woodworking and metalworking workshops would be under threat.
