Support for Student Organizations Is Changing. Key Points

On January 27, 2017, the HSE Academic Council approved a document regulating support for HSE student organizations at its Moscow campus.

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 2017:
Spring: April 3 – May 15, Summer: May 16 – June 25, Autumn: September 15 – October 27
