EDUFI Doctoral Fellowships in Finland

The EDUFI Fellowships programme is open to young Doctoral level students and researchers from all countries and from all academic fields who wish to pursue their Doctorate (or Double Doctorate) at a Finnish university. Master’s level studies or post-doctoral studies/research are not supported in the programme.

All international students

Scholarship benefits

The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months. The monthly allowance is 1,500 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 EDUFI.

These are the requirements to apply for

The prerequisite for applying is that the visiting researcher must have established contacts with a Finnish host university. 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.

The application form for the EDUFI Fellowship can be downloaded below. Additionally, the following attachments are required for a EDUFI Fellowship application:

  • A motivation letter from the applicant (the hosting university), max 1 page
  • Complete CV of the scholarship candidate
  • Research plan (3-5 pages)
