Dora Plus grant for Master`s students
Dora Plus Sub-Action 2.1 Support for international master`s students
The purpose of the grant
The goals of this action are to support foreign Master’s students studying in Estonia, thereby contributing to the exchange of knowledge, to make the local study process more internationalised and to increase the amount of highly educated workers in Estonia in the long run.
Support is offered to talented foreign Master’s students in Estonian universities. Foreign Master’s students can obtain a grant when studying in Estonia full-time and for one academic year at a time.
Action is supported by the European Regional Development Fund. The implementer of the activity is the agency of education internationalisation at the Archimedes Foundation.
The scholarship for foreign Master’s students is 350 euros per month. The scholarship could be awarded for one academic year, i.e. 10 calendar months at a time.
The grant can be awarded to a person:
- who is a full time international master’s student at the University of Tartu;
- who is not a resident of the Republic of Estonia;
- who is not a citizen of Estonia;
- whose country of residence is not Estonia;
- who does not have a permanent residence permit/long-term residence permit;
- who has not been in Estonia for more than one year during the past three years.
The grant for foreign master’s students is paid if the grantee has studied for one whole calendar month. The grant is not paid during academic leave. The payment of the grant is suspended for the time of studying abroad. The payment of the grant is terminated as of the month when the student no longer meets the requirements for receiving the grant. If a student is deleted from the matriculation register in relation to completing the curriculum, the grant is paid for the whole calendar month.
