University of Tartu scholarship fund for Ukrainian students

The University of Tartu established a scholarship fund on February 28, 2022 to collect and channel donations to support the studies of Ukrainian students at the University of Tartu. Both companies and individuals can make donations to the fund.

The scholarship is open to bachelor's and master's students with Ukrainian citizenship. The foundation will announce a public competition for the scholarship on its website and through the university's information channels.

Rector of the University of Tartu Toomas Asser said that it is our duty to provide students who have come to study at the University of Tartu from Ukraine with all the support they need to feel safe, both in these extremely difficult times and as they think about their future and studies. "The education of Ukrainian students must continue despite the tragedy and the related economic hardship that has hit their home country and families. Every member, graduate and cooperation partner of the University of Tartu, as well as every education-minded Estonian resident, can contribute to this through the scholarship fund," said Asser.

Ukrainian students can use the scholarship according to their needs. They are already exempt from tuition fees. The number and amount of scholarships depend on the total amount of donations.
