Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) is a unique English-speaking international graduate only research university, located just outside of Moscow. Established in collaboration with M.I.T., Skoltech integrates the best Russian scientific traditions with twenty-first century entrepreneurship and innovation.
The PhD course takes a minimum of three years but normally it takes four years. Those accepted into this program will receive (i) a tuition waiver (covering the full price of tuition) as well as (ii) a basic starting stipend of 85k RUB (tax free) which goes to 105k RUB (tax free) after proven performance for twelve months and (iii) medical insurance.
Application procedure. The application process will consist of two stages. Students should send their full CV and a statement (not more than 300 words) outlining their interest to their potential advisor – as part of initial screening, selected candidates will be contacted to submit a full application with a potential initial screening interview via Skype.
