Students submit their project via the HSE Family's 'Student Projects' folder (international students may submit their proposals via e-mail)

All HSE Family users and experts, as selected by the Fund Council, vote for the projects

Public defense (students present their projects)

*Projects are assessed according to voting results - 50% of an assessment is based on the votes of HSE Family users, and the other 50% - on expert votes. According to these results, shortlists of projects for public defense are formed.

The final assessment of a student’s project is based on 50% of the Funding Council’s assessment and 50% of expert/user voting.
