Summer 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.

Till June 13 students can enter this season’s contest by completing an application and sending it to the Student Initiative Support Centre via email at studsupport@hse.ru

On June 14-22 students and experts will review the applications and vote for the projects. The best projects will be invited to participate in a public defence in front of the Foundation Counci on June 30.

Student projects can receive up to 200,000 rubles in support from the university. There is also a simplified application process for projects needing less than 15,000 rubles in support.

To read more about recent rule changes or about past winners, please visit the website of the contest.

The contest has taken place five times since it began in 2014, with 413 projects participating and 70 winning. In total, students have received 5, 397, 198 rubles in support. Previously, the competition was held no more than twice a year, but it will now take place once per season with the 2017 competition being held in spring, summer, and fall. 12 projects received financial support following the spring round of the contest.
