Anna Kuzikova, a “Terahertz Biomedicine” Laboratory employee, who is studying at ITMO University's Department of Photonics and Optical Information Technology, has won an international competition for the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society scholarship. It is one of the most prestigious scholarships for young scientists studying radio-frequency, microwave and terahertz radiation. No more than twenty people a year receive such an award. However, this is the seventh victory of an ITMO University student in the last twenty years. The jury praised Anna for her work on the diagnosis of cancer with terahertz radiation. An ITMO.NEWS correspondent met with the honored young scientist and learned how this research can help doctors, what Anna Kuzikova is going to do after this project and why she considers competitiveness as one of the main drivers of science.
The Vladimir Potanin Foundation Scholarship Program is aimed at helping talented Master’s students of Russian universities. The selection of the grantees took place in two rounds: an offsite and an onsite one. First, the candidates submitted their resumes and a detailed description of their accomplishments, and in the second round, they participated in business games based on the results of which the judges issued a final ranking. In 2020, 500 out of 3,000 candidates were chosen to become the scholarship’s recipients throughout their Master’s; 27 of them are ITMO University students. ITMO.NEWS spoke to several of them to find out what helped them win and what advice they would give to future Master’s students gearing up to participate in the competition.
The on-site round of the Potanin scholarship contest for Master’s students was held in eight Russian cities between January 22 and February 10. The organizers usually keep the tasks of the on-site round secret, but their format is known to be not unlike that of business simulation games and case competitions. We asked representatives of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation about the aims of the contest and the qualities of a perfect candidate. The candidates themselves told us what motivated them to take part in the competition and the tasks they had to solve during the on-site round.

Tatyana Latynina, a PhD student at ITMO University’s Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information, made it to the list of awardees of the Ostrogradski Program’s Scholarship. Held annually, the program aims at helping young scientists from Russia visit research laboratories in France to conduct joint research projects together with their French colleagues. This fall, Tatyana will spend a month and a half at the University of Rouen, where she will study advanced electrical aluminum alloys. Such materials are now being studied intensively by various research groups all over the world. Research in this field opens up new opportunities for controlling the materials’ properties, such as their strength, heat resistance, and electrical conductivity.
