Application for the Scholarship of the Russian Federation Government for 2023/24 has started (for foreign candidates)
The selection campaign for the academic year 2023/2024 to study in Russia at the expense of the budgetary funds of the Government of the Russian Federation (by quota) has started. Registration on the portal of the information system education-in-russia.com is open and will continue until February 20, 2023.
Foreign citizens and stateless persons, including compatriots living abroad, are admitted to the selection. Russian citizens who have citizenship of a foreign country can also apply, but only if they do not have permanent registration on the territory of the Russian Federation. If they have a document on the removal of registration, the date of the document must be no later than September 1, 2022.
To participate in the selection tests, candidates need to register on the education-in-russia.com information system website and fill in an application form. The SPbPU international Office asks you to pay attention to the fact that currently there may be technical difficulties when using Google email addresses, so it is preferable to use other email services when working with the portal.
If the guys are interested in entering our university and plan to become part of our friendly Polytechnic family, then when filling in the application form they need to put Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in the first place, that is, to choose the university as Priority No. 1, commented the Deputy Head of the International Education Office Anna Kotolaeva.
It is very important to pay attention to the list of requested documents — foreign applicants must upload a photo, scan of passport and educational document (or certificate of education period) with a notarized translation into Russian. Also, a copy of the medical certificate, containing a comprehensive assessment of the candidate’s health, as well as copies of medical certificates confirming the absence of hepatitis B, C, tuberculosis and a copy of the certificate of absence of HIV infection with a translation (without notarization) must be uploaded.
Another required document is the candidate’s consent to the processing, transferring, and storing of personal data. This file can be downloaded from the education-in-russia.com information system. It must be in the form of a separate document in Russian and/or English, and signed by the candidate.
Those who plan to study for a postgraduate degree must submit a list of published scientific papers and/or an abstract (motivation letter) indicating their educational level, name of university, specialty or field, educational and scientific experience, achievements in scientific paper competitions, participation in scientific conferences, publication of scientific articles, as well as interest in studying for the chosen educational program and prospects for applying the knowledge gained in future professional activities.
The completed application form must be placed in the «For review» status within the specified time frame. Applications in the «Draft» status will not be considered.
Candidates have the right to submit information about their individual achievements, the results of which will be taken into account in the selection process through the accrual of points.
SPbPU students applying for a scholarship can apply in person to office 206 in the 15th academic building (28 Grazhdansky Prospekt) with a request for a recommendation letter in case SPbPU is listed in the candidate’s bid in the first place, said Anna Kolotaeva.
The candidate may also submit materials on participation in scientific and educational conferences and symposiums; publication of scientific publications with bibliographic data, a document on the previous education «with honors»; participation in social projects (e.g., volunteer work, etc.); availability of sports and creative achievements.
In case the candidate has difficulties with registration and filling in the application form, he/she can consult the technical support service in his/her personal account on the education-in-russia.com website or in the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in his/her country.
