  • The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months.
  • The monthly allowance is 1500 euros.
  • Part-time work is allowed for students of all nationalities
  • 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 program.
  • NB: the EDUFI Fellowship is a start-up grant rather than a full degree scholarship, so if you, for example, receive an EDUFI Fellowship for 12 months, after that period you should seek other sources of funding for the remaining period of your studies/research.


  • The program is open to candidates of all foreign nationalities. However, when decisions on scholarship are made, the emphasis is given to applicants from Russia, China, India, Chile, Brazil and North America.
Eligible Regions: Open For All.

Application Process

  • 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) on the official website.
  • 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 program.
  • The application form for the EDUFI Fellowship can be downloaded from the Apply Now section. 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)

  • Two printed and signed copies of the application with required attachments should be submitted to the following address: Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI), PO Box 380, 00531 Helsinki. Please mark the envelope with “EDUFI Fellowships”.
  • There are no annual application deadlines in the EDUFI Fellowship program. Applications may be considered at all times. However, applications should be submitted at least 5 months before the intended scholarship period. Decisions will be made within approximately 3 months after receipt of application.
