The Finland Scholarship is a scholarship category for the best non-EU/EEA applicants who are admitted to Master’s degree studies at the University of Turku. Each international Master’s programme of UTU can award a Finland Scholarship to their applicant(s) with most merit. The number of Finland Scholarship recipients per programme depends on the programme quota.

Applicable programmes


The Finland Scholarship covers the tuition fee and includes a separate 5,000 € grant for expenses in starting the studies in Turku, Finland. The 5,000 € grant will be paid to a Finnish bank account during the first semester, after the student has enrolled as an attending student at the University of Turku and moved to Finland.

As part of the Finland Scholarship decision, the scholarship recipient is also granted a conditional second year scholarship to cover 100% of the second year’s tuition fee. In order to confirm the second year scholarship the student must complete 45 credits by the end of March or 55 credits by the end of June of their previous study year. Details will be given in the scholarship offer.


  • Finland Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit. Extracurricular activities are not evaluated and means testing is not used.
  • The programmes rank their applicants based on the admission criteria that may include an interview, motivation letter or relevant academic experience in addition to the grades of the previous degree.
  • The highest ranked applicant(s) in each programme are then proposed to the scholarship committee as candidates for the scholarships. The committee awards the scholarships to the best candidate(s) of each programme.
