Scholarship programmes

The Finnish National Agency for Education awards and administers scholarships for students, researchers and teachers. We don't however have any scholarship programmes or other financial assistance available for degree studies at bachelor’s or master’s level in Finland. Student scholarships are mainly intended for postgraduates who have completed a master’s degree.

Through our scholarship programmes, we support the internationalisation of teaching and research by forging links and encouraging academic mobility between institutions of higher education in Finland and abroad.

Scholarships are available for applicants from all countries.

Each scholarship programme has its own eligibility criteria, application procedures and deadlines. A scholarship normally consists of a monthly allowance intended to cover living expenses in Finland for a single person. The amount of a scholarship varies according to the scholarship programme and academic qualification of the applicant. No additional expenses such as travel, housing, or insurance are covered.

We have several scholarship programmes:

  • EDUFI Fellowships
  • Finnish Government Scholarship Pool
  • Finnish studies and research: scholarships for advanced studies of the Finnish language at Finnish universities
  • Finnish studies and research: scholarships for postgraduate studies and research at Finnish universities
  • Scholarships for Kindred Peoples (Finno-Ugrian minorities in Russia)

More information about our scholarships is available on the www.studyinfinland.fi website.

Scholarships for Finnish students

EDUFI has an intermediary role in awarding scholarships to Finnish undergraduates and postgraduates for higher education study and research abroad. These include country-specific grants (Russian Government Scholarships).
