What does the scholarship cover?
The scholarship includes:
The Finnish Government Scholarship Pool programme can be applied for a study/research period of 3-9 months, 9 months being the maximum time for an individual applicant.
You may wish to keep in mind that the Finnish academic year starts in late August/early September and ends in late May (check the exact dates with the Finnish university you're interested in). However, in your application you may also specify your scholarship period to start later than September - as long as your scholarship period begins within the academic year that you've applied the scholarship for.
This scholarship programme can not be applied to cover a whole Doctoral degree programme - if you are granted this scholarship, after the initial CIMO scholarship period you will need to look for other sources of funding for the remainder of your studies/research in Finland.
How and when to apply
Applications for the Finnish Government Scholarship Pool funding should be made to the appropriate authority in the applicant's country. For information on the appropriate authority in your country, please see the listing of countries and authorities to contact.
The announcements for the opening of the annual application round are sent out from CIMO at the end of September annually.
Applicants may then contact the scholarship authorities in their home country for information on the national deadline for submitting the application documents. Make sure you meet the national deadline in your home country, as that is the deadline by which you should submit your application to the national contact authorities.
