Scholars are selected on the following criteria:

  • Master’s Programs: an appropriate bachelor’s degree, or it’s equivalent, from a recognized University
  • Doctoral Programs: an appropriate master’s degree, or it’s equivalent, from a recognized University
  • Applications are open to domestic and international students. Applicants must be in the final year of their undergraduate studies or hold a higher education degree (Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree or Specialist degree) in one of the following areas of study: mathematics, technical science, applied science, physics, chemistry, biology, or related areas. Additionally, you must have a record of success in your studies as well as knowledge of English.
    Skoltech focuses on acquiring the highest levels of talent and applicants must meet at least the minimum requirements. Those who hold a degree in humanities or social sciences must have extended knowledge in one of the five areas of study offered by Skoltech.
    As Skoltech receives many more applications each year from excellent candidates than we have placements available, meeting the minimum admissions requirement does not necessarily guarantee admission.
