Guidelines of the Kristjan Jaak Scholarhship for Short Study Visits


Please note that the following conditions have to be fulfilled before we can conclude scholarship contracts and make scholarship prepayments:

  • it is possible to achieve the purpose of the study visit (the host institution is open, the study and research activity takes place abroad at the host institution);
  • it is possible to travel to the destination without restrictions (the transport connections function, the borders between the point of departure and destination are open).

The subsistence grant can only be paid for the days that have been spent completing the work plan at the destination. If the period shown on the certificate of attendance that is submitted with the scholarship report is shorter than in the contract, the subsistence grant for the days missing on the certificate has to be repaid. This applies even if the study visit was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please click here to read additional information about planning your mobility.
