Scholarship

Financing principles

Eligible costs for individual beneficiaries are:

  • Travel costs
  • Scholarship to cover subsistence costs, allocation for study material, tuition fees, insurance and conference fees

Students’ study/placement/research duration and grant amount

The maximum monthly rate of the scholarship for students going to study from Estonia to European countries is minimum – Euros and for students coming from European countries to Estonia it is minimum – Euros. There will be an additional – Euros allocated for travel expenses, depending on if the starting point or destination.

The student can apply for additional support from national and private foundations for the duration of their studies, but they cannot use the Erasmus grant while they are abroad with financing from the EU Grants Scholarship Programme. In order to avoid double financing, the same rule applies for the national scholarship programmes.
