On March 29th, HSE alumni congratulated the winning students of the Student Research Paper Competition in the ‘Economics’, ‘Sociology’ and ‘Political Science’ categories. This ceremony was one of the first offline events of 2021 at the university.
This is the third consecutive year that the HSE ‘Outstanding Alumni Endowment’ has awarded special scholarships to HSE students for their research achievements based on the results of the research paper competition. Not only the students, but also by the chairman of the Endowment Board of Trustees Sergey Pavlovsky, as well as the organizers of the competition, Tatyana Zakharova and Ivan Gruzdev, took part in the event. The meeting was organized thanks to the staff of the Centre for Student Academic Development.
The HSE ‘Outstanding Alumni Endowment’ project first became involved with the research paper competition in 2019, marking the beginning of a long-term cooperation between these two projects. The endowment fund currently exceeds 9 million roubles, but the founders plan to increase this amount six and a half times.

Winning the Student Research Paper Competition is a significant achievement for young researchers, and for many years, an expert jury has selected the best works in various research fields. This year, as a result of the pandemic, award ceremonies have been carried out over Zoom. However, it’s hard to do this and give the winners and laureates the feeling of celebration, and therefore, we are particularly glad that we managed to organize an offline event for the Endowment scholarship recipients.
Not only the winners of the research paper competition, but also participants of international competitions are eligible to receive this grant. In addition, anyone can become a donor of the fund and contribute to its development. Detailed information is available on the website.
We congratulate the students on the award and wish them further professional and research success!
