Ural Federal University: 63 University Students Receive a Presidential Scholarship

Ural Federal University received 63 quotas for students and PhD students for the scholarship of the President of the Russian Federation. Among regional universities, UrFU was the first in terms of the number of allocated quotas for the 2022/23 academic year, and ranked fifth overall in the country, only behind universities in the capital. The students who study in the fields corresponding to the priority directions of development and modernization of the country’s economy will be able to get financial support. The document is published on the website of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

The Presidential Scholarship is awarded annually to students and PhD students in technical fields, mainly in engineering. To participate in the competition for its granting there are no special tests. The applicant should study with “good” and “excellent” for two semesters, have no academic debts and confirm the existence of scientific achievements. The portfolio is the main selection criterion. Participation in competitions, conferences and events from intramural to international level not only develops skills and abilities, but also allows to get additional financial support.

“When applying, I sent documents confirming participation in the regional project competition “Robokon” organized on the basis of Urals Optical-Mechanical Plant, victory in the All-Russian competition “WorldSkills”, several certificates of participation in international conferences, there were other events. I confirmed my scientific activity with the articles published in the journals of Russian Science Citation Index level. Although it is not the highest level for scientific journals, it is important to show that you generally have a desire to bring or develop something new, to adopt the experience and knowledge of those who were at the origin of the specialty. These contests are directly related to the development of my competences and in the future they will be useful for my work in my specialty. Every year I am convinced that my specialty “Automation of technological processes and productions” is not only interesting, but also promising both for me personally and for the economy of the country,” says Aleksandr Bormotov, the student of the Department of Electronic Engineering, the scholarship holder of the academic year 2021-2022.

Students note that participation in the scholarship competition also allows them to meet people with similar interests. Such meetings are always useful both from the scientific point of view and for personal development, because you can learn a lot of new things about a topic that you are interested in.
