Study scholarship

SEB Charity Fund expands it activities and continues helping children without parental care in new areas. We have created a scholarship programme to support children in making decisions about their future and taking the first steps in their independent lives. The goal of the programme is to give children without parental care equal opportunities in continuing their education, self-improvement and development of their talents. A career day event will be held within the framework of the scholarship programme, participation in which is mandatory for the scholarship recipient. In 2018, career days will be held on 4 March and 21 October. Scholarships are financed with donations received by the Fund and the return on the investment of the Fund’s assets, as well as donations made through the donation environment “I Love to Help”.

Who are eligible to apply for the scholarship?

All persons up to 26 years of age who live in the care of curators, foster families, shelters or substitute homes who want to start or continue their education by studying full-time in a vocational educational institution or an institution of higher education are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

Amount and payment of the scholarship

The total scholarship fund in 2018 is 40 000 euros. The scholarship is meant for:

  • payment of the tuition fees and
  • purchasing study aids and/or
  • the monthly subsistence support.
     

Required documents

One person may apply for a scholarship of up to 640 euros for the payment of tuition fees; up to 640 euros for purchasing study aids; monthly subsistence support (for the period February - June  2018 (incl.); 100 euros per month). The exact and final division shall be decided by the scholarship committee that has the right to change the amount of the scholarship.

Scholarships are awarded twice a year: in February and September. The deadline for submitting applications for the autumn semester is 2 February 2018 and the scholars will be announced at the end of February.

When a scholarship is granted, the Fund pays the following:

  • the tuition fee on the basis of the invoice submitted by the educational institution, or the scholarship applicant shall submit the invoice to the Fund with the document that evidences the payment of the invoice and the Fund shall reimburse the amount on the basis thereof;
  • the amount meant for purchasing study aids shall be paid out on the basis of submitted invoices or expense documents;
  • the subsistence support shall be transferred to the scholarship recipient's current account on the 10th day of every month.

The scholarship committee consists of representatives of the Ministry of Social Affairs, the SEB Charity Fund and SEB Pank.

Scholarship recipients can join the Mentor Programme, where the employees of SEB who are committed to helping young people support and act as older friends to those who study with the help of the SEB Charity Fund's scholarship. Further information is available at www.heategevusfond.ee/mentor.
