In 2008, the Chancellery of the Riigikogu founded August Rei Scholarship in Parliamentary Studies that aims to promote parliamentary research.
August Rei Scholarship in Parliamentary Studies
The scholarship is awarded to authors of Master’s or Doctoral theses on parliament, parliamentarism or the parliamentary assemblies of Estonia.
August Rei Scholarship in Parliamentary Studies is awarded annually, and it was founded by the Chancellery of the Riigikogu in 2008. By today, the scholarship has been granted to fourteen master’s students and doctoral students. Twelve candidates have successfully received their degrees to date.
We hope that the competition for scholarship in parliamentary studies will inspire young researchers also in the future, and contribute to the research and valuing of the activities and history of our parliament.
