Both the scholarship competition and the enrollment are conducted according to Innopolis University documentation. Please read the documents carefully to understand the scholarship conditions.
UPDATE (as of July 03, 2020): the tuition fees have been reconsidered by Innopolis University administration recently. For Fall-2020 entry, the full tuition fee has been stated as 800.000 Rubles/year, both for Bachelor and Master programs. Also, new scholarship options have been introduced (25%, 50% and 75% coverage of the tuition fees).
The Official Documents have been amended accordingly, please read them carefully!
Both the scholarship competition and the enrollment are conducted according to Innopolis University documentation:
1) REGULATION on the Competition for Higher Education Grants for Bachelor's and Master’s Degree Programs for the participants from far-abroad countries .PDF file (UPD as of July 03,2020)
2) HIGHER EDUCATION GRANT CONTRACT - available within the Regulation, pp 11-27 (UPD as of July 03,2020)
3) CONTRACT on Higher Education Studies Bachelor's program, .PDF file and Master's program, .PDF file
NB! The contracts will be signed remotely first, and we will use the scans of the documents for your timely enrollment. Later on, the documents shall be signed with live signatures and exchanged either in person or via post service within the first academic year (the way of exchanging the original documents will depend on the situation with the pandemic).
Further instructions are coming in late July.
- Regulation on the Competition for Higher Education Grants for Bachelor's and Master’s Degree Programs for the participants from far-abroad countries = Regulation;
- Higher Education Grant Contract = Grant Contract;
- Contract on Higher Education Studies = Contract.
Grant = tuition fee coverage (full or partial), offered to candidates based on the grant contest results. Grant conditions vary depending on a category of the grant recipients, and may include scholarship (monthly allowance) and employment obligations.
(see Regulation, clause 1.4 and Grant Contract, Article 4)
1. Grant offer duration
The grant offer is valid for the whole period of studies: Bachelor program - 4 years, Master programs - 2 years. Once confirmed before the enrollment, the grant conditions shall not be changed.
2. Why there are two contracts (Grant Contract and Contract)?
One of the documents - the Contract - defines the relationship between you as a Student and Innopolis University as an educational institution.
Another document - the Grant Contract - states you as the scholarship receiver (Grantee) and confirms that your study fees are covered by the scholarship and not your personal money.
3. A Grantee’s responsibilities
To master an academic program is a central and vital responsibility of grantees from far-abroad countries.
NEW! Starting from the Fall-2020 intake, there are two main responsibilities introduced to grantees from far-abroad countries.
1) Grant/scholarship payback responsibilities
(see Grant Contract, Article 5)
2) Obligation to work upon graduation
For some categories of the Grant recipients, a scholarship offer includes an obligation to work for either IU or an Innopolis company upon graduation.The scholarship conditions shall not be changed during the studies or upon the graduation. I.e. in case your scholarship offer doesn’t mention the work obligation, that will be valid for the whole duration of your studies and won’t be changed. (see Regulations, clause 1.8 and Grant Contract, clauses 1.2, 3.1, 3.4)
4. A student’s responsibilities
A student is obliged to attend lectures and classes, provide all project reports timely and pass exams. He/she is also responsible for treating the University’s property carefully and obeying the rules of accommodation at the University Campus.
(see Grant Contract, clause 3.1)
5. Can someone receive the grant for a second time?
In case you pass the grant contest successfully, get the grant offer, accept it, come to Innopolis University, sign the contracts and start your studies - your grant is considered authorized. In this case you are not eligible for receiving the grant for a second time.
(see Regulation, clause 2.2)
Meanwhile, in case you participate in the grant contest and for some reason don’t pass it or don’t accept the grant offer, you are absolutely eligible to apply for the grant for a second time next year.
This rule applies to a certain level of education. I.e. one is eligible for having several IU grants for different levels of education. One can study the IU bachelor program with a grant, and then apply for another IU grant for master studies, and then even apply for a grant to study a PHD program in IU.
When it comes to signing the enrollment contracts, there are some supplementary documents as Request for admission and Consent on personal data processing to be reviewed and signed. They are usually prepared on a day of enrollment.
