The Estonian Students Fund in USA is hoping to reach greater numbers of 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Estonian-Americans. Scholarship amounts can range from $1,500-$5,000 depending on the applicant’s background, financial need, grades, etc. The applicant’s interest and participation in the Estonian-American community are also taken into account as are basic Estonian language skills (though this is not a requirement).
The Fund also provides special scholarships to those US-born students who wish to study in Estonia for a semester, a year or longer.
Information about the Estonian Students Fund in USA can be found online at www.esfusa.org. The scholarship application is posted to the website.
The application deadline for 2012/2013 is February 28th, 2012. Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee in the spring, notification is made in May and scholarships will be distributed in early September, 2012..
Also, for those who use Facebook, the Fund has a page there that can help keep you informed about news, deadlines and other relevant information from ESF. Simply log on to Facebook, search on “Estonian Students Fund in USA” and give us a “Like”.
