When opening the event, Dmitry Sumskoy (First Pro-Rector, NCFU) said:

– The scholarship program from the Potanin Foundation is a special one in our country as it offers a chance not only to students yet also to teachers. It is available for 75 leading universities of our country, the NCFU being among them. Our students have always been successful here, and 13 Master’s students were awarded this year, while one more grant was awarded to a teacher of the Institute of Law. This brought our University to the 18th place among all the Russian universities joining this program.

Elena Kadenkova, a representative of the Potanin Foundation mentioned that the program has been running since 2000. Besides, there is no limit on the number of winners from the same institution so everyone is welcome to try their abilities. The contest involves 2 tournaments after which the Expert Council selects 500 winners to award 15,000 RUR of monthly scholarship to each of them until they graduate. As for the grants, the maximum is set at 500,000 RUR.
