told Oleg.

The winners of the Physical Battle will receive certificates for internships at the world’s leading research centers. The future TPU students will be able to choose an institution based on their scientific interests. In addition, both the winners and the laureates of the competition will receive additional scholarships in the amount of up to 30 thousand rubles per month during the upcoming fall term.

The scholarships and the certificates will be granted to those winners and laureates who will joint PhD programs at the TPU Research School of High Energy Physics or master programs at TPU and conduct research within the School. Currently, there are 13 laboratories and research groups within the Research School of High Energy Physics.
