Applications for the Compatriots Programme (Estonia) are accepted in 3 categories: Study scholarship, language scholarship and Compatriots Programme children’s camps

February 20, 2015

The aim of the scholarships offered by the Compatriots Programme is to support the language and degree studies of young expatriate Estonians in Estonia’s public universities, national institutions of applied higher education and vocational education centres.

The study scholarship will support successful applicants who wish to enrol for curricula taught in the Estonian language. If an applicant’s command of the Estonian language is insufficient to successfully cope with learning in that language, the applicant can request a grant to support his/her participation in an intensive Estonian language course prior to engaging in substantive studies under the curriculum chosen. The Compatriots Programme cannot support studies in languages other than Estonian.

The language scholarship will support participation in an intensive Estonian language course at the University of Tartu. The period of support is 10 months.

The objective of disbursing assistance for children’s camps in the compatriots programme is to give expatriate Estonian children an opportunity to attend a summer camp in Estonia during one summer.

Deadline: 5th May. More information:
