Dora Plus activity 1.1: Short-term study mobility

Short-term study mobility may last for up to 30 days. The scholarship can be applied to participate in a professional conference, seminar or course, or carry out other educational and research-related activities, for example working in libraries, using laboratories, developing study materials, working with a supervisor, participating in a field work, consultations or other similar tasks, which are closely related to the priorities of Tallinn University.

Tallinn University´s procedure for applying for activity 1.1

The scholarship may be applied by anyone who is:

  • a master’s or doctoral student at Tallinn University;
  • a lecturer or researcher at Tallinn University, who is not older than 35 years of age on the first day of the mobility, or who has defended his/her doctoral thesis less than 5 years ago. Parental leave can be used to prolong these limitations proportionally;
  • not using other grants or scholarships to cover the expenses;
  • not using this scholarship to visit multiple countries at once.

PS! The prerequisite for processing the applications of doctoral students, lecturers and researchers is the Estonian Research Information System aka ETIS account of the applicant!

Scholarship amount:

The maximum amount is €2,000 per mobility.

The scholarships are given according to a ranking list and the principle, that every applicant will generally receive no more than one study mobility scholarship each academic year.

Expenses covered:

  • travel expenses
  • accommodation
  • participation fee (will be covered according to an expense document/bill, or confirmation by the organiser)
  • allowance: €32 per day

The additional days need to be justified, except in cases when the destination is on another continent or when the event starts at 11 am or earlier and finishes at 4 pm or later according to the official agenda.

The mobility has to start and finish in the same country, however the point of departure and destination must be in separate countries. Mobilities within one country are not funded.

NB! The expenses cannot be covered simultaneously by other funds (except personal funds of the applicant).
