ECU is proud to support the young, local Estonian community with scholarship opportunities.

ECU Ekbaum Scholarship

Once a year, we open up our ECU Ekbaum Scholarship to students attending post-secondary school who are active in the Estonian community. The scholarship recipients are chosen by a four-person panel from the Board of Directors and staff of the Estonian Credit Union. In awarding scholarships, the panel places greater emphasis on the applicants' involvement in the Estonian community and the submitted written discussion. The ECU Ekbaum Scholarship typically begins to accept applications in the first few months of every year, and the scholarships are handed out at our Annual General Meeting.

The ECU Ekbaum Scholarship has already been given out for 2018. Keep your eyes on this page in early 2019 for details on the 2019 Scholarships. 

See some of our 2018 Recipients below.

Bursary for Student Study / Exchange in Canada

We are excited to share with you a new bursary opportunity for our members! This bursary is open year-round, and it's purpose is to recognize young members who are looking for a study or exchange opportunity in Estonia in their specific specialty, including vocational education areas.

In awarding scholarships, the Panel will place greater emphasis on the applicants' involvement in the Estonian community as well as the outlined objective of the study or exchange program that they are attending.

The recipient would need to agree to submit two overviews along with photos of their experience. One overview would be submitted during their trip, and the other after they have returned from Estonia.
