Autumn Student Project Contest Commences
Each year HSE holds the Student Project Contest, which allows projects deemed important for the development of the university at least and all of society at most to receive financial, organisational, or any other type of support to help them succeed.
All HSE students are invited to submit their projects via ‘HSE.Family’ platform before October 14. Since the site currently does not have an English interface, international students may send in their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Voting for projects by students and experts will be held October 15-21. A shortlist of the highest-scoring projects will be announced, and these projects will then be presented to the Foundation Council on October 29-31.
Students can apply for the competition at any one of our HSE campuses and are in the running to win up to 200,000 rubles to put towards their project.
To submit a project in the autumn competition, you should plan to implement it before December 30, 2018. When putting in your application, keep in mind that from the moment the winners are announced, to the actual implementation of the project, an average of 2-3 weeks is required in order to carry out the final preparations, prepare the documentation and settle any project costs.
More information about changes to the competition and the results of previous years can be found on the website. Starting September, there also exists another mechanism to support student projects, HSEcoin. HSEcoins can be donated to any project untill November 20.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact project manager, Ekaterina Savitskaya.
