The purpose of the Dora Plus scholarship for PhD student mobility is to improve the awareness of doctoral degree students of diverse teaching and research practices, encourage their involvement in international co-operation projects, improve the completion rates of doctoral studies, and strengthen the compliance of doctoral studies at Estonian universities with the principles of innovative doctoral studies.
The Dora Plus Scholarship is awarded to support the mobility of doctoral degree students of Estonian universities (hereinafter the PhD students) to the universities or research institutions abroad. A PhD student may apply for the scholarship for multiple times within his/her period of study, taking into account that the minimum duration of each mobility is 31 calendar days and the scholarship can be awarded in total for 10 months.
- travel expenses (for two-ways travelling).
- living expenses (given as per day).
IS SCHOLARSHIP ANNUAL?
Dora Plus Scholarship For PhD Student Mobility are awarded yearly to international students. You are strongly advised to visit this website regularly to see more scholarship opportunities.
Important Information: This is a personal advice. I need you to grasp the idea in it. “Some scholarships require you to first apply to the host university for admission before you can be considered for scholarships. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost any fee to apply for admission as an international student.
If the scholarship eligibility criteria require you to hold an offer of a place at the university and you will be automatically awarded the scholarship”. While few others require you to first be a newly admitted student (fresh student) of the university before being awarded a scholarship, hence the need for you to step up efforts in your quest to study abroad.
Also, ensure you first read the eligibility criteria and application procedure of every scholarship opportunity published on this website carefully before commencing your application because some scholarships don’t necessarily require you to first apply to the host university for admission or be a fresh student as stated earlier.
You are strongly advised to check back on this website regularly for more scholarship opportunities.
International applicants from all countries are eligible to apply.
