Archimedes Foundation suspends the advance payments of Dora Plus and Kristjan Jaak scholarships until 10th of April
Archimedes Foundation suspends the advance payments of Dora Plus and Kristjan Jaak scholarships until 10th of April 2020. We advise withholding further expenses regarding the travels abroad and considering the necessity of participation taking account of all related risks – health risks as well as possible cancellation of chosen event(s).
Due to the current development of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Estonian Health Board recommends to consider whether participation in the event abroad is necessary. It is useful to note that many events are cancelled even outside of the existing risk areas.
We will evaluate the possibility to reimburse expenses made before 10th of March on a case by case basis. In case of cancellations, we cannot reimburse the costs made after 10th of March. We will send an email to grant recipients within the following days specifying which documents to present in case of cancelled trips.
If you do decide to undertake travelling nonetheless, you will act on your own responsibility. In that case, we strongly recommend to take insurance with extended travel interruption coverage.
We would like to emphasise that you have not lost your scholarship if the event takes place and you participate in it. We would only cover the costs after the visit following the methodology specified in the scholarship guidelines.
Although the advance payments have been suspended at the moment, all forthcoming application deadlines remain unchanged.
