THE ESTONIAN government has launched strategic initiatives to internationalise the country's higher education and research institutions.

Therefore, scholarships have been created for non-resident PhD students in the fields of natural and exact sciences, technology and medicine. The candidates must have prior qualification to enable PhD study and must start in an Estonian university in the academic year subsequent to admission. The amount of the grant for the 2007/2008 academic year is 60,000 Estonian kroons (USD $4,955). A return ticket home once a year, health insurance and a residency permit fee is included. The student's progress is assessed after the first year, upon which some will earn the right to study free of charge in a selected faculty.
