Moldova Education Scholarships

Need Some Financing?

Moldova is a small Eastern European country wedged between Romania and Ukraine. The country has been independent of the former Soviet Union since 1991, but is still working on getting its political and economic footing. Nonetheless, it remains one of the poorest nations in Europe and it has yet to become a member of the European Union’s common market. About the size of Maryland, Moldova’s landscape is one of rolling steppe which gradually slopes toward the Black Sea. The economy depends on the agricultural production of fruits, vegetables, wine, and tobacco. While Moldova is rich in fertile soil, it lacks critical resources, including gas and energy, that must be imported.

Since the economy is a stimulus for study, available scholarships are funded by the federal government to provide collaborative exchange for evolving democratic societies, with some offered through the U.S. Department of State Title XIII: Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity program.

Federal Scholarships

Moldova is a region of interest in these federally funded scholarship programs:

American Councils for International Education provides funding for scholars, educational opportunities, collaborative environments and encouragement prompting Western and Eurasian scholars to come together for deeper understanding. Part of the organization’s mission is to administer scholarships in the name of the Title VIII program. Scholarships and fellowships for high level applicants wishing to study abroad in Moldova include:

Private Funding

Every two years, the Institute of Current World Affairs offers two-year fellowships for self-designed, independent study abroad, but they explicitly are not awarded to support work toward academic degrees, writing a book, or for research projects. Candidates may seek fellowships in any country.

The John O. Crane Memorial Fellowship has a focus on Central and Eastern Europe. Qualified candidates must be freethinkers and highly motivated. They must be fluent in the language of their destination, and have a good command of the English language for writing monthly newsletters. The ideal project is one in which there exists a great potential to impact society. These fellowships provide full financial support for its fellows and their immediate families.
