Summer School of Potanin Fund: NEFU Students compete for grants

On July 1 - 6 Moscow is hosting a Summer school for students-winners of the Federal Scholarship Program of Vladimir Potanin’s Charity Fund. The participants, including students of the North-Eastern Federal University, have formed teams and now are preparing to defend their volunteer projects.

“Seven students represent NEFU, - said NEFU team captain Lena Sivtseva: - Our project is called “Relax room” or a recreation room. We think that educational institutions should have places where students can relax and recover strength, because study loads are often very high”.

This year’s School is attended by 350 students from 27 leading universities of the Volga, Ural, Siberian and Far Eastern federal districts and Moscow. Grants will be awarded to some of 62 student projects in three directions: “Socially oriented activity”, “Student scientific societies and development of professional competences”, “Student life and student self-government”.
