Edgar Krahn Scholarship Fund

The Krahn Scholarships are funded from the Edgar Krahn Scholarship endowment. This endowment was established in honor of the mathematician Edgar Krahn (1894-1961), who played a significant role in the development of mathematics in Estonia, and made research contributions in diverse areas including differential geometry, probability, gas dynamics and elasticity.

The Edgar Krahn Scholarship endowment was established in 1983 by Dorothee Krahn, the widow of Edgar Krahn. Dorothee Krahn has remained active in the University as a supporter not only of mathematics, but also of the arts.
