  • Application deadline: 01.03.2024. 
  • Who are eligible: students of I and II level study programmes, who do not hold temporary protection, thus cannot apply for need-based allowance from the Ministry of Education and Research. This is mostly a) the students enrolled at UT before the academic year 2022/2023 or b) the students enrolled in the academic year 2022/2023 and 2023/2024, but who left Ukraine before 24.02.2022 and therefore do not qualify for the ministry’s need-based allowance or c) the students studying with part-time workload or who have not graduated on time.
    The students enrolled in the year 2022/2023 and 2023/2024, who had the opportunity to apply for temporary protection (thus would have the right to apply for the need-based allowance from the Ministry of Education and Research), yet decided to apply for the temporary residence permit (TRP) for studies or who are staying in Estonia without applying for right of stay, can apply for this support.
  • Application form: the form to be submitted is HERE. In addition to the application, some applicants need to submit the document proving their right to apply for the given allowance.
