Student Project Contest

Do you or your student organization have an idea of a cool nonprofit project? Three times a year, you can submit your project to a competition and get financial support from the university to implement it. Any initiative can win the competition and get up to 300 000 roubles. In the Urban Projects category it is possible to get up to 1.5 million to implement your project!

The contest is a great opportunity to present your idea and get funding regardless of the project scale—it could be a small photo exhibition or a major city festival.

Cultural Centre

The Cultural Centre is a space that brings together people who are ready to implement their most daring ideas. The Centre hosts academic and extracurricular events, as well as sports classes, and Open Days. It broadcasts major HSE events.

Cultural Centre is located at 11 Pokrovsky Boulevard (Building Z).


Each year, HSEcoins are awarded to university’s students and staff members. You can obtain and transfer them to student projects via HSEcoin section on the HSE Family website. Creators of student projects can purchase goods and services for the equivalent amount in roubles through the Student Initiative Support Centre. HSEcoin-rouble exchange rate is set annually by the university.

When the first shock is gone and everything is settled with your timetable, it’s time to think about other things that you can do apart from studying. Here, at HSE, you can find a lot of activities from a huge variety of student organizations to research projects and career opportunities. Everyone will find what meets their interests the best.
