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.

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). Applicants are also advised to visit the Finnish universities' own websites for detailed information on the Doctoral level study and research options the universities offer.

Doctoral applications are usually made directly to the universities. The detailed entry requirements vary from one Doctoral option to another, and the same is true for application periods. Some universities may accept doctoral study applications at all times, while others may have specific application periods.
