Swedish Embassy and Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia acknowledge students' achievements with a scholarship
The Department of Scandinavian Studies at the UT College of Foreign Languages and Cultures is proud to announce two scholarships worth 500 euros to Bachelor students majoring in Swedish language and literature.
The scholarship is financed by the Embassy of Sweden and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia, whose aim is to support and develop business relations between Estonia and Sweden. According to the director of the college, Kersti Lepajõe, the supporters' activities and large membership of the chamber are a good example of how many companies actually need experts who are well acquainted with the important cultural aspects of a foreign country: "In order for the business relations to be successful, we need mediators, who know the business climate and traditions in both Estonia and Sweden. In addition to experts skilled in economics and business in general, we also need people who are experts in the language and culture."
The scholarship is intended as a motivation and support for students demonstrating outstanding academic achievements, as well as active use of the skills and knowledge acquired in Swedish philology in professional life and society.
The application deadline is the 15th of June 2017.
All the documents needed for applying and the conditions of the scholarship are available on the homepage of the Department of Scandinavian Studies.
