Scholarships for bachelor`s and master`s studies are granted for one academic year – a time period up to 10 months (for PhD-students – up to 11 months).

Scholarship for master`s studies in the study programmes of Latvian philology, Latvian literature, Latvian culture and Latvian history can be granted for two academic years, i.e. for the duration of master`s study programme.
