Scholarships offered by the universities

The universities and UAS's (universities of applied sciences) in Finland have scholarship options on offer for gifted non-EU students. You usually apply for the scholarship from the university or UAS at the same time when you apply for admission.

Note the special “Finland Scholarships” for university master’s applicants. These you also apply directly from the university.

How and when to apply

The application period and route depends on the degree programme you are interested in, so check in the database whether the programmes of your choice use the joint application, or some other admission route.
