Courses and number of scholarships

There will be 15 free places for intermediate or advanced students available at summer courses organised by Tallinn University (10.06-28.06.2017) and 19 free places  for intermediate or advanced students available at summer courses organised by University of Tartu (24.07-4.08.2017). 

The scholarship amount: tuition fees, cultural program and accommodation in the least expensive double room. The applicant must cover the costs of travel to and from the course, and meals.

Who are eligible to apply: free places are offered only for intermediate or advanced students, who already have at least A2 knowledge of Estonian. We do not offer the free places for beginners. All applicants must send a confirmation letter from their Estonian lecturer or teacher.

Documents

In order to apply for a free place you must complete in our application system:

  • online application form - https://taotlused.archimedes.ee/pub_login.php
  • letter of motivation. In addition to reasons for attending the summer course, the applicants should describe in their letter of motivation their academic interest in and connections with Estonia (attended courses, delivered or planned research papers etc);
  • applicants must provide a letter of recommendation by their Estonian language and culture lecturer, which can be sent directly to the Estonian Institute separate from other documents.

IMPORTANT: In case the applicant has no preference for either Tallinn or Tartu university courses, and can participate in one or the other, he or she should fill a separate application for both universities. A free post will be granted for one course only.
