Estophilus scholarship

Tallinn

Mar 27 2017 / Oct 1 2017

The Estophilus scholarship allows MA and PhD students to study Estonian culture or language in an Estonian University.

Twice a year, the Archimedes foundation grants scholarships to foreign nationals master students, PhD students and post-doctorate researchers studying Estonian language or culture, and wishing to pursue their research in Estonia.

This scholarship programme, called Estophilus, is founded by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research, and aims at encouraging research in Estonia-related topics to promote the country’s global visibility. Being proficient in Estonian is not a requirement but will obviously be an advantage when applying for the scholarship.

The amount of the scholarship is 500€ per month for all the grantees, and the period spent in Estonia must be at least thirty days, and at most ten months. The scholarship should cover the living expenses, the tuition fees, and the expenses related to the research of the student. You will have to cover all other expenses (e.g. visa cost, if needed).

This scholarship allows students to spend ten months in an Estonian University to write a research thesis about Estonian language or culture. You will have to be in Estonia for the whole duration of your stay, but you can ask for this period to be divided in two. For example, you can choose to stay in Estonia for 60 days during the autumn semester, then for 30 days for the spring semester. In this case, you will be granted the scholarship for the duration of your two stays only.

Your application, written either in English or in Estonian, must contain:

  • A formal application

  • Your research plan

  • Your curriculum vitae

  • Proof that you are a MA or PhD student, or a document verifying your PhD degree

  • A recommendation of your research supervisor for MA and PhD students

  • A confirmation of the Estonian research and development institution about the acceptance of your application. In this confirmation, you need to describe briefly your research topic and justify the importance of that research for Estonia

The formal application as well as the recommendation letter have to be signed, either on paper or digitally. You have to upload your application on the site. Once all of the documents are uploaded, you will be able to print your application, sign it, and return it to the following address:

Estophilus
Koidula 13a
Tallinn 10125
Estonia

Your candidature must be sent in before March 1st 2017 or October 1st 2017, and you can send it up to one month before this deadline.
