In 1950, an informal supporting fund for students of Estonian origin was founded as a unit of the New York Estonian Educational Society. It was incorporated as a non-profit official organization under the name of Estonian Students Fund in USA, Inc in 1961. The objective of the fund is to further and promote religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes; to promote the understanding and knowledge of the art, science, literature and language of Estonia: to extend voluntary financial or other aid to such persons who are engaged in furthering the purposes above named; to grant scholarships to deserving students. The Fund is active until today, giving out different scholarships and grants.
