The Chancellery of the Riigikogu founded August Rei Scholarship in Parliamentary Studies with the aim of supporting and promoting 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. All students, master’s students and doctoral students who are interested in dealing with the subject are welcome to submit the drafts of their works.
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 twelve master’s students and doctoral students. Seven candidates have already successfully defended their thesis.
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.
