Below we talk about the features of participation in 2024 and important changes that must be taken into account when submitting an application.

The terms of participation

The composition has been slightly adjusted categories, to which participants must belong. For example, a new category has been introduced: “children of parents (legal representatives) recognized as completely disabled and having a disability of group I or II.” In 2024, the following categories are presented:

children of deceased (deceased, declared dead, recognized as missing) parents (legal representatives) while performing military service (official duties); children of deceased (deceased, declared dead, declared missing) parents (legal representatives) who had the highest state awards; children of parents (legal representatives) recognized as group I or II disabled due to a disease acquired during the performance of military service (official duties); children of parents (legal representatives) who have the highest state awards and disability of group I or II; children of parents (legal representatives) recognized as completely incapable of work and having a disability of group I or II; children from low-income families; children of parents with a low educational level; children from large low-income families; children from families in difficult life situations; children of combat veterans.

*The condition does not apply to the category “children of combat veterans.”

Mechanics of the competition

Submitting an application takes some time, as it involves collecting a large number of documents. In this regard, the organizers are trying to simplify this process. For example, submitting applications online has become more convenient. The applicant now does not have to immediately send a complete set of documents; it is enough to provide basic information at the first stage, and then attach the documents at any time before the end of applications. In case of personal submission or sending by Russian Post, the process remains the same: the application is submitted/sent immediately with a complete set of documents. You can view the list of documents at link.

Anton Zakharov, head of the “Social Elevator” project

The changes affecting the project in 2024 are related to the global social mission of the Higher School of Economics – to make quality education more accessible to more people. It is valuable and important for us to give applicants who are in difficult circumstances the opportunity to study at the Higher School of Economics for free. The project really attracts more and more people every year: over the 5 years of the Social Elevator’s existence, over 2 thousand people took part in it, and 661 people entered the HSE. In addition, we conduct webinars and come to regions of the country, tell students personally about the project, explain what it is, how it helps, and accept applications right on the spot. For example, last year five such meetings were organized: in Vologda, Krasnodar, Ryazan, Saratov and Yaroslavl. The list of regions for 2024 has not yet been confirmed, so keep an eye on the website for news. By the way, on February 14–15 we will be present at an educational exhibition in Krasnoyarsk, where you can also apply for participation.
