Scholarship in Finland- Full Scholarships :(Deadline 31 July 2021)
Application call for 2021 Scholarship in Finland- Full Scholarships. The scholarship is open to all nationalities and the deadline is 31st July 2021.
The University of Vaasa offers a generous scholarship programme for students who are subject to tuition fees. Scholarships are applied for by choosing the scholarship option in the application form to the programme. Students are informed about possible scholarships together with the admission results.
According to the Finnish Parliament decision, Finnish universities charge tuition fees from non-EU/EEA students. At the University of Vaasa tuition fees vary from 10,000 to 12,000 euros per academic year, and are billed to degree students in international Master’s degree programmes.
First-year scholarship – The University of Vaasa global student scholarship
Each Master’s program will provide one 100% tuition fee waiver to the best-ranked tuition fee subjected student based on the previous academic merits reviewed during the application process.
Each Master’s program will also provide five 50% tuition fee waivers to the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth best-ranked tuition fee subjected students based on the previous academic merits reviewed during the application process. All first-year scholarships include a conditional 50% scholarship for the second year.
Scholarships are personal and linked to the acceptance of the offered study place. They do not transfer to other universities.
Second-year scholarship – The University of Vaasa global student award for academic excellence
Every student proceeding with the studies in the target time (approximately 55 ECTS during the first year) is entitled to a 50% tuition fee waiver for the second year. If the student was granted a first-year scholarship to the program, the second-year scholarship is included as long as the studies are proceeding in the target time.
A student who does not have a first-year scholarship can apply for a second-year scholarship during the studies. Details for the second-year scholarships will be communicated to the students during their first year.
Eligibility for 2021 Scholarship in Finland
Degree students are eligible for a Finnish state scholarship and a state-guaranteed bank loan only if they have lived in Finland for at least two years in some capacity other than that of a student and if their residence in Finland can be considered to be of a permanent nature. Those who have sufficient income or who progress poorly in their studies are not eligible for support. As a rule, foreigners who have lived in Finland for less than two years are not eligible for financial support unless specific reasons make their residence in Finland permanent.
