What is the Student Project Contest?
The Student Project Contest is a way of providing financial support to student projects. A student or a group of students may submit their project and receive up to 200,000 roubles for its implementation.
Both individual and group applications from HSE students may be accepted. Not only students, but also HSE graduates and staff can participate in the contest, provided that the project is being conducted by a HSE student.
Students of all HSE campuses may take part in the contest.
There will be three rounds of the contest in 2018:
Winter: February 1 – March 16, Spring: March 19 – April 27, Summer: May 17 – June 28, Autumn: September 14 – October 24
held since 2014

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.
