The Estonian Union for Child Welfare Foundation acting as a sub-fond of The Estonian National Culture Foundation was established in 2002 with the goal to support talented students acquiring basic or secondary education. The establishment of the foundation became a reality thanks to the Sillaehitaja 2001 award given to Estonian Union for Child Welfare by the Estonian Association Union and Finnish-Estonian Chamber of Commerce. The awards came with a financial bonus which was invested in the creation of the foundation.

The applicant for the Estonian Union for Child Welfare Foundation scholarship is expected notable achievements in studies (subject olympiads) or some other practiced area (sports competitions, contests etc). The main goal of the scholarship is to support the child and expand his/her options for further development of his/her talent.

The scholarship is personal and is meant for:

  • Participation in subject olympiads, contests of sports competitions;
  • Payments for interest-, sports, language classes (courses)
