Head of the Student Affairs Organization at the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology has stated that the budget of short-term sabbatical leave has been increased by 23%.

In his interview with ISCA News Agency, Dr. Mojtaba Sedighi explained that based on the rules of the year 2018 (1397), profitable companies, banks and state organizations were responsible to cooperate in providing almost 40% of research affairs cost.

He declared that, regarding to the next Iranian year 1398 budget, growth is expected for next year’s Student Welfare Fund of Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. Also special loans for doctoral students will be provided to assist them in continuing their education.

Finding time to conduct research or learn new teaching techniques can be elusive for life scientists with heavy teaching loads and administrative commitments. Time "off" for a sabbatical leave can offer a welcome chance for a scientist to learn.
