Stipends and allowances
On this page you will find information on the study allowances and stipends that students of the University of Tartu have the opportunity to apply for.
The aim of the achievement stipend is to offer recognition and support to students who have excellent study results while studying with a 100% workload. Students of all study programmes can apply for an achievement stipend starting from the second semester. The stipend will be granted for the best students according to the ranking list. The ranking lists are first compiled on the basis of weighted average grade. Only a few students will receive the stipend.
The purpose of the specialisation stipends is to motivate students to study full-time in areas of priority for Estonia. In addition to the targeted support for information technology curricula, and the European Union-funded specialisation stipend, there are teacher training specialisation stipends for some Estonian-taught curricula.
Independent of average grade, students from low-income families or students who have a disability can apply for a study allowance. It is necessary that the student fulfills all the application criteria in order to receive the allowance.
Other scholarship resources
In addition to Estonian government stipends it is possible to find other scholarhip offers from the University of Tartu Foundation, from the message boards in university buildings, from the web pages of different institutions and from the media. Information about stipends is also announced in the student newsletter.
