State Education and Development Agency (SEDA) informs that application round for Latvian State scholarship competition for studies and research for the academic year 2017/2018 is completed and that evaluation committee, comprised of representatives from the SEDA, Ministry of Education and Science of Latvia and Student Union of Latvia finished evaluation of the applications.

On 1st April 2017 SEDA received several times more applications than in previous years, thus the competition among applicants was very tough. Number of applications received for scholarships for studies is 230, out of which 78 applicants have been nominated for the Latvian State scholarships to pursue studies at Latvian Higher Education Institutions, while for the research fellowship out of 86 applications submitted, 20 researchers are nominated for the research fellowship to be conducted at scientific institutes of Latvia or Latvian higher Education institutions. In total scholarship nominees represent nationals of 26 countries.

Each of the applicant will receive an official answer from the SEDA during June 2017 in the electronic application system and via e-mail.

SEDA doesn’t pay scholarships directly to the receivers, but via higher education institution of Latvia or  scientific institute, where the scholarship receiver has studies or research work.

Further information about contracts to conclude will be available with these institutions.
