Student of St. Petersburg State University Alexey Zyryanov conducted a social experiment. He tried to live a month on a scholarship – 1572 rubles. He told about his experience to the correspondent of Rosbalt. The idea of the experiment was born in the student canteen. Alexey brought home buckwheat with eggs in a container, and classmates noticed that 50 rubles a day goes for such food. They suggested that with such a diet one can live only on a scholarship.
Alexey receives an ordinary scholarship – 1572 rubles.

He used the scholarship only on the bare minimum and only for a month. Alexey said he does not intend to continue the experiment any longer.
