Can a private non-governmental organisation (MTÜ in Estonian and NGO in English) grant scholarships only to women?

A private non-governmental organisation (NGO) may award a scholarship for which only people of one gender can apply. The scholarship holder has the right to determine the terms and conditions for applying for the scholarship. Each scholarship has a different purpose and different eligibility criteria. The Commissioner does not have the authority to dictate to a private person to whom and under what conditions he or she may award a scholarship or grant, and whom he or she may support.

If you did not find an answer to your concern, you may contact the Estonian Commissioner for Gender Equality and Equal Treatment in a free format by sending an email to avaldus@volinik.ee. When contacting the Commissioner, the identity of the person shall not be disclosed and, upon request, anonymity shall be guaranteed.
