LL.M. Leading Student Scholarship

Pericles offers scholarships for two exceptional students for up to 90% of the LL.M. degree's cost. These Leading Student Scholarships are reserved for students who have participated in the Russian National Rounds of the Jessup Completition, or for students who reside or studied in the locations outside of Moscow (regardless of Jessup participation). Applicants must apply within two years of finishing full time law study at their first university. If you do not meet this crieteria, please consider other types of financial support offered by Pericles to its LL.M. applicants.

Pericles Leading Student Scholarships are available:

  • For graduates from a first law degree within the past two years or from a second law degree within the past two years, provided the student went straight from the first degree to the second full time degree without working in between.
  • from a Russian regional law school, located outside of Moscow and the Moscow region.
  • from any foreign law school outside of Russia.
  • from any law school if you were participants in the national or international rounds of your Jessup International Moot Court program.

Up to 2 scholarships are awarded each year.

Applicants outside of Russia please note: As a non-state institution, Pericles cannot procure student visas. If you are coming from abroad you should have the means to obtain a visa on your own. Pericles is happy to refer you to Russian language or law programs where you can enroll simultaneously to obtain visa support.


Scholarships cover up to 90% of the LL.M. degree's cost, subject to the winner maintaining good grades. Scholarships are not available for special study-abroad programs and do not include the cost of textbooks, or administrative fees of 9000rubles/course (as of November 10, 2023).
