The aim of the scholarships offered by the Compatriots’ Programme is to support the studies of young expatriate Estonians in Estonia’s public universities, national institutions of applied higher education and vocational education centres. Applications for scholarships are invited from young expatriate Estonians who have not resided in Estonia on a permanent basis during the last 5 years.

The study scholarship will support successful applicants who wish to enrol for curricula taught in the Estonian language. If an applicant’s command of the Estonian language is insufficient to successfully cope with learning in that language, the applicant can request a grant to support his/her participation in an intensive Estonian language course prior to engaging in substantive studies under the curriculum chosen. The Compatriots Programme cannot support studies in languages other than Estonian.


To remain eligible for the scholarship, the recipient must actively pursue his/her studies and must have completed at least 75% of the coursework required by the curriculum by the end of each year of studies.
