The scholarship "Golden legacy" was established in 2015 to encourage distinguished students and postgraduates with an active life position. Over the years, it has established a reputation as a significant award among students. Competitive selection of fellows, appointment and one-time payment of scholarships are held twice a year – based on the previous semester.
The competitive selection of fellows takes into account such criteria as a high average score of the candidate (not less than 4,75), the presence of academic, sports, creative, social and other documented achievements. All applicants should write an essay on "Why I deserve a scholarship" and record a video message in English on the topic "My place in the oil and gas industry".
As a rule, scholarships are usually awarded in a solemn atmosphere at international events. Thus, the winners of the previous competition were awarded at the VI Future Leaders Forum, which held in June 2019 in St. Petersburg.
