University of Tartu scholarship fund for Ukrainian students grants the autumn scholarships
According to Maili Vilson, the scholarship committee chair and Deputy Head for Academic Affairs of the University of Tartu Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies, the committee agreed that the fund should support as many Ukrainian students as possible. Vilson thanked all enterprises and individuals who were able to donate. “The donors’ contribution has been vital. Although students of Ukrainian citizenship are exempt from tuition fees, their financial situation is difficult; and the scholarship can make it slightly easier for them to concentrate on their studies. It is important to continue to support them, which is why I invite everyone to continue to donate to the fund,” said Vilson.
The scholarship is open to the University of Tartu bachelor’s and master’s students with Ukrainian citizenship. In autumn, the foundation received 90 applications, of which the committee found 81 that matched the scholarship’s objective and the statute. The scholarship amount is 600–1,000 euros, and the recipients can use it according to their needs. The scholarship amount depends on the amount of money accumulated in the scholarship fund. The student must be able to manage the whole semester on the allocated amount.
The University of Tartu and the University of Tartu Foundation are grateful to everyone who has donated to the Ukrainian scholarship fund. There were more than 200 donors. The fund continues to gather donations to support Ukrainian students in the future. If there are enough funds, the new scholarship competition will be opened on 15 February 2023. Donations can be made on the University of Tartu Foundation’s website.
