A grant contest of the Gorchakov Fund at the Eurasia Global Forum: attend online!

25 August 2020

The Gorchakov Fund in collaboration with the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs and the National Youth Council of Russia are organizing a contest for financial support of international youth projects on the sidelines of the International Youth Educational Forum “Eurasia Global”, which will be taking place on September 2-8, 2020 in Orenburg.

The fifth anniversary International Youth Educational Forum “Eurasia Global” provides a platform for a dialogue of young representatives from Russia and their foreign peers. In 2020, the forum will be held under the auspices of UNESCO. 

Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has prevented many foreign participants from attending the forum in Russia. However, the organizers made a decision to allow all those, who are interested, to participate in all online platforms of the Eurasia Global Forum.

The Gorchakov Fund informs that foreign applicants will be able to submit their international projects for participation in the grant contest. The Gorchakov Fund will support the best projects with the grants in the amounts of 200 000, 300 000 and 500 000 rubles.

The contest will be organized in two stages: by correspondence and in-person (defense of the projects):

  1. All projects submitted for the contest will be evaluated by the expert committee, which will consist of top foreign affairs experts, government officials and representatives of international organizations.

  2. The defense stage of the contest will be divided into two parts. Participants, who will be attending the Eurasia Global Forum in-person, will present their projects to the expert committee at the forum. Participants, will not be able to come to Orenburg, will present to the commission online. All details on how to access the forum and the rules will be explained in the letter sent individually to each participant.
