State youth policy is a system of priorities and measures aimed at creating conditions for successful socialization and effective self-actualization of young people, developing their potential in the interests of Russia. In conditions of the transitional period in Russia’s development, the traditional system of training as well as the government youth policy and activities of public organizations should ensure formation of independent, self-confident people ready to live in a self-organized society. Grant support mechanisms represent a universal means to initiate activity of young people. The effectiveness of grant mechanisms has been proven by international experience of foreign countries that have been successfully applying these instruments over several decades. In the context of globalization and continued influx of migrants, young people should act as mediators of tolerance, disseminators of Russian cultural traditions. The authors studied the experience on the development and implementation of youth policy in the European Union and the United States. The EU appears to be the undisputed leader from all analyzed countries in terms of availability, openness, reliability, and relevance of information on youth policy. The EU member states created information platforms for young people containing detailed data on areas for submitting grant applications, amount of funding, and conditions of participating. The experience of other countries seems interesting and informative as to date in the Russian Federation there is no information space integrating the data on events and activities arranged for young people especially in the field of science and technology.
