Scholarships for Master's programmes at the University of Tartu (Estonia)


Ministry of Foreign Affairs scholarships for applicants of Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Moldova, Belarus, Azerbaijan and Afghanistan

The University of Tartu has applied for funding from the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to offer scholarships for candidates applying for English taught Master’s programmes . The Ministry will make the final decision regarding funding and eligible study programmes in February 2017. Further information will be published on this website as soon as it is announced.

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has given preference to IT-related Master´s programmes, thus the UT has applied for funding for such programmes only and other programmes will not be eligible. In 2016, 8 stipends were available.

The scholarship will provide a stipend of 400 EUR per month for two years (standard study period of Master’s studies - altogether 20 months). In 1-year programmes the stipend will be paid for 10 months. The scholarship does not cover tuition fee. However, in all eligible programmes there should be tuition-waivers available for the best applicants (allocated based on admissions ranking lists).

How to apply?

Applicants are required to meet all admission requirements and submit the full package of application documents (please find more information on the website of your chosen study programme). All applicants from target countries applying for the eligible programmes are automatically considered for the scholarships. Scholarships are allocated to the best applicants based on the admissions ranking lists (each programme separately). Only well motivated candidates with good academic performance and properly prepared admission package will be considered. The students who have not graduated by the admission deadline are still eligible, provided that the rest of the admission documents are properly prepared.

If you are interested in taking up Master’s studies at the UT and regard yourself a good candidate for this scholarship, please submit all required application documents in our online application system by March 15, 2017We do not request for any additional documents to be submitted except for the ones required by the study programme(s) you are applying for.
