The New Economic School has been holding the NES Guardian awards ceremony since 2017. The awards are given to benefactors and graduates of the school who make a particular contribution during the academic year.
Ruben Enikolopov, Rector of the NES, said:
“Andrey Petrovich is a long-time friend and partner of the school. He has been contributing heavily to the endowment fund of the school for three years now and his aid has been paramount to our future. The NES endowment fund is not just an investment in our future generations of students, graduates, and professors, but also means we can be confident in the prospects of economic and scientific development in our country.”
Andrey Vavilov was also given the NES Guardian award in 2017 and 2019.
