Travel Grants (Academic Mobility)

The Scientific Committee of the FSS provides financial support for participation in scientific events (travel grants).

Travel grants are allocated for trips to scientific events held on the territory of the Russian Federation, CIS countries and abroad, organized by organizations external to NRU HSE or in which NRU HSE is a co-organizer of the event without funding.

Also, during a pandemic, funding is allocated to pay organizational fees for scientific events held online.

Conditions for the provision of funding by the Scientific Committee of the FSS

Categories of applicants who can submit applications to the FSS Scientific Committee:

  • faculty of the Faculty of Social Sciences, including the dean, employed full-time
  • full-time students, undergraduates and postgraduates of the Faculty of Social Sciences, studying in state-funded places

The rest of the categories of applicants apply to the Science Foundation.

Scientific events include: conference, congress, symposium, scientific seminar (workshop), student conference, summer school, school of "young scientists", organized by organizations external to NRU HSE, or in which NRU HSE is a co-organizer of the event without funding.

Participation in scientific events is understood as a personal presentation of a report or poster. The poster presentation can only be submitted at conferences in the field of cognitive psychology.

Applications are submitted individually. In the case of presentation of a report in co-authorship, the application can be submitted only by one of the co-authors.

Applications are submitted electronically through the applicant's personal account on the HSE portal. Students and graduate students can create a personal account by writing a request for its creation in order to send an application for a travel grant (see Accessing your personal account).

Applications can be submitted throughout the entire calendar year.

Applications should be submitted no later than 45 days before the start of the event. For events held in Russia or online, it is permissible (but undesirable) to submit no later than 30 days before the start of the event. We also recommend taking into account the timing of organizational fees. The application review procedure can take up to several weeks.

The Scientific Committee can support one grant application from one applicant per calendar year (in exceptional cases - one for a foreign trip and one for a trip to Russia, or one for a trip and one for an online event). If several applications are submitted simultaneously, the priority of applications should be indicated.

No more than five applications can be supported for one event. In exceptional cases, by the decision of the Scientific Committee, a larger number of applications for significant scientific events can be supported.
