Every semester, the Estonian Academy of Arts grants social stipends to students who are self-funding their studies. The amounts of the stipends correspond to the tuition established for the students in the given semester. The goal of the social stipend is to support the studies of the students who have encountered financial difficulties, by enabling them to continue pursuing a worthwhile education. The stipends are not paid out to the recipients in cash, but the tuition obligation for the given semester is reduced accordingly.
