EDUFI Fellowship Program for Foreign Students in Finland

Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) is glad to offer a number of PhD Fellowships for foreign doctoral students and and young researchers in Finnish Universities. Preference will be given to those from Russia, China, India, Chile, Brazil and North America. A range of benefits will be given to the winning fellows. Applications are accepted round the year.

Award Value
The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months. The monthly allowance is 1500 euros. The scholarship is intended to cover living expenses in Finland for a single person. No additional allowance for housing is paid. Expenses due to international travel to and from Finland are not covered by the programme.

Level and Area of Studies
Doctoral program in any field available at the university.

Place of Study
At any university in Finland.

Eligibility and Criteria
The primary target group in the EDUFI Fellowship programme are such Doctoral level students who will be doing their Doctorate (or Double Doctorate) at a Finnish university. Visiting Doctoral-level students and researchers who are doing their Doctorate degree at some foreign university can also be considered eligible, provided that the motivation letter of the hosting Finnish university department presents exceptionally good grounds for such an application.

Applicants’ Nationality
Non – Finnish citizens are welcome to apply.

Application Instruction
The prerequisite for applying is that the visiting researcher must have established contacts with a Finnish host university – please see the section Doctoral Admissions for further information (you’ll find links to the universities’ Doctoral Admissions pages there). You are also advised to visit the Finnish universities’ own websites for detailed information on the Doctoral level study and research options the universities offer. If a Finnish university is willing to host you, then the Finnish university department wishing to host you can apply for the EDUFI Fellowship on your behalf. That is, only the hosting Finnish university can act as an ‘applicant’ in the EDUFI Fellowship programme.
