Applications are ongoing for the 2015 CIMO Doctoral Fellowships in Finland for International Students. The CIMO Fellowships programme is open to young Doctoral level students and researchers from all countries and from all academic fields who wish to pursue their Doctorate (or Double Doctorate) at a Finnish university. Master’s level studies or post-doctoral studies/research are not supported in the programme.
The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months. The monthly allowance is 1,500 euros. 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 CIMO.
All international students but emphasis is given to applicants from Russia, China, India, Chile, Brazil and North America.
Application Requirements and Eligibility
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).
You are also advised to visit the Finnish universities’ own websites for info on Doctoral level study and research options. If a Finnish university is willing to host you, then the Finnish university department wishing to host you can apply to CIMO for the grant on your behalf. In other words, only the hosting Finnish university can act as an “applicant” in the CIMO Fellowship programme.
There are no annual application deadlines in the CIMO Fellowship programme. Applications may be considered at all times. However, please note that applications should be submitted at least 5 months before the intended scholarship period .
