The application round for scholarships of the Development Fund of the Tallinn University of Technology, which will be provided by 34 cooperation partners this spring, has started. Students of TalTech can apply for 80 scholarships until 31 March.
The aim of the Development Fund is to increase the motivation of students to study and to stimulate the growth of the research community at TalTech. Scholarships for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral studies average 1,300, 2,000, and 3,200 euros respectively.
The scholarships are awarded by companies operating in Estonia.
The latest scholarship is the newly established support fund for Ukrainian students, to which anyone can make a donation. The support will be provided to Ukrainian students of TalTech in autumn.
Estanc AS once again supports students of TalTech with two scholarships for master’s studies. The providers of the Mihkel Aitsam Scholarship have also rejoined the Development Fund.
In addition, KPMG Baltics, Swedbank, and CF&S Estonia will also start supporting TalTech students.
‘The decision to provide scholarships was made because KPMG employs several TalTech alumni who have had a successful career with us. We want to maintain and deepen this connection, so that we could continue to enjoy successful, exciting, and mutually enriching relationships of cooperation,’ said Epp Sillaste, Head of Human Resources.
The Development Fund of the Tallinn University of Technology has been operating since 1991. The longest partners of the Development Fund are Eesti Energia, Viru Keemia Grupp, Tehnopolis Ülemiste, Harju Elekter, Eesti Mäeselts, Merko Ehitus, Telia, Nordecon, Silberauto, and Trev-2. Over the past 20 years, Estonian companies and individuals have provided students of TalTech with support totalling almost 3 million euros.
