The next stage of the competition encompasses interviews of the contestants with members of jury, which will be held from 30 May to 3 June 2011 in Kiev. The jury members include representatives from business circles, professional associations and education councils.

Results announcement and signing of the Declaration by the winners will take place at the end of June.

Currently 17 winners of the first WorldWideStudies selective competition are studying in the Universities of the USA (3 students), Great Britain (8 students), Sweden (3 students), Switzerland (2 students) and Germany (1 student) pursuing such subject areas as ecology and protection of environment (5 students), law (9 students), public administration (2 students) and sports management (1 student).
