Scholarships to be Awarded to Student Research Paper Competition - 2021 Winners
On September 29, the HSE Academic Council approved the Regulation on Scholarships for the Winners of the HSE University Student Research Paper Competition - 2021. The competition winners will now receive scholarships of 20,000 roubles per month.
Scholarships will be awarded in all 24 subject areas and will be available for undergraduate, Master’s and doctoral students at HSE University.

In the past, winners of the research paper competition received additional points for the portfolios they submitted in the competition for increased state academic scholarships for research achievements. However, since these increased academic scholarships have become smaller, this has ceased to be a viable tool for rewarding students. The Academic Council therefore supported the idea of establishing a separate scholarship for the 1st place winners. This will make the competition more interesting for students and will serve as an additional incentive for student involvement in research.
How the scholarships will work
First place winners in the Student Research Paper Competition who are studying at any HSE University campus will receive an additional scholarship over a period of 10 months. If a paper was co-authored, the scholarship will be divided equally among all authors.
There are four options for receiving the scholarship (we will use winners of the 2021 competition as an example):
- HSE students who are not graduating in 2022 will receive scholarships from January to June and from September to December 2022.
- Students who are graduating from HSE University in 2022 and applying for Master's degrees will be eligible for scholarships from January to June and from September to December 2022.
- HSE Master’s students who are applying to doctoral schools will receive payments from January to June 2022 and from November 2022 to February 2023.
- Winners who are not studying at HSE University can receive their scholarships once they enrol at HSE University:
upon admission to the undergraduate / graduate programme, the scholarship will be paid from September 2022 to June 2023;
upon admission to doctoral schools, the scholarship will be paid from November 2022 to August 2023.
You can submit your paper for the competition until October 15. The competition has 24 subject areas and is open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as 2020 graduates. In addition to the new scholarship, the winners and runners-up will receive many other prizes, including additional points for their Master’s applicant portfolios and academic travel grants.
On September 1st, a new season of the open Student Research Paper Competition (SRPC) started. This competition is aimed at developing the potential of university students who are interested in academic activities. Students, as well as 2023 graduates of Russian and foreign universities, can submit their papers for the competition until October 15th, 2023. This year SRPC turns 20 years old, throughout the competition’s history, Vadim Radaev, HSE University’s First Vice Rector, has been the chair of the organising committee. In today’s interview, he talks about the history of the competition and the key stages in its development.
Yuanqi Zhou, from China, is currently studying on the Master's in Comparative Social Research under Russian government scholarships and funding from the China Scholarship Council, while also working as a research assistant at Centre for Civil Society and Non-Profit Sector Studies. In this interview, Yanqi talks about scholarships, HSE University’s impressive academic resources, and the soothing qualities of a Moscow sky.
Enrolment in undergraduate programmes is underway. International recipients of the Russian Government Scholarship can study at HSE University for free and get a place at an HSE dorm. Senanu Dekpo-Adza from Ghana and Hamisha Rijal from Nepal study at HSE University as part of the scholarship programme. They shared their experiences of admission and studies at HSE University with the HSE News Service.
The start of a new academic year is an excellent time to plan the next steps in your academic career. On September 1, HSE University announced the start of its annual Student Research Paper Competition (SRPC-2022). Participation is open to students of Russian and international universities and to 2022 graduates. Last year, a total of 2,196 papers were submitted to the SRPC, of which 435 were from external participants.
International students interested in joining HSE University can apply for full-tuition scholarships from the Russian government. Applications for the 2022/23 academic year are open from March 1–11. We spoke to HSE University doctoral students about their work and about how scholarships have helped them pursue their research goals.
HSE University Celebrates the Academic Achievements of 2021 Student Research Paper Competition Winners
The award ceremony of the 2021 Student Research Paper Competition took place on February 8. The organisers congratulated the students and early career researchers and told them about the benefits of winning in the competition.
The annual HSE Student Research Paper Competition (SRPC) helps young researchers try their hand in a real academic competition, where leading experts and professionals from HSE University assess their research papers. This year, participation will be open from September 1 to October 15.
If you are an international applicant, you still have time to apply for scholarships from HSE University. The full-tuition scholarships are awarded annually in May. This year, the Scholarship Committee will meet for the last time on May 27, 2021 to determine who receives full and partial scholarships.
The winners of the Student Research Paper Competition were given their awards at HSE University on Pokrovsky Boulevard. The ‘Outstanding Alumni Endowment’ scholarship was given to the authors of the best works in the ‘Economics’, ‘Sociology’ and ‘Political Science’ categories.
The annual awards ceremony of the Student Research Paper Competition (NIRS) was held on February 8, Russian Science Day. This year, 165 people received awards, including not only HSE students but also contestants from Saint Petersburg State University, Moscow State University, Far Eastern Federal University, Mount Holyoke College (USA), and other universities.
