Scholarships

There are several ways to fund your studies at Aalto University. Prospective non-EU/EEA students applying to Aalto University Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes as well as Nordic Master programmes are eligible to apply for scholarships awarded from the Aalto University Scholarship programme. Certain international joint degree programmes have their own tuition fees and scholarship schemes. There are also some possibilities to apply for a scholarship outside Aalto University.

Aalto University Scholarship Programme

Aalto University Scholarship programme seeks to recognize talented non-EU/EEA students across the world by awarding academic excellence. Scholarships may cover 50% or 100% of the tuition fee. The number of scholarships awarded is limited and depends on the budget available to the programme.

Aalto University is also building an incentive scholarship system in which an additional waiver will be rewarded to students who have made good progress in their studies.

Applicants apply for the scholarships at the same time they apply for their preferred study options with the same application form. The scholarship decision is given together with the admission decision. The decisions on the awarded scholarships are made on the basis of the academic merits of the students selected to study in the programmes.

At the moment, Aalto University does not offer any scholarships to cover living costs in Finland. Students are expected to cover all living expenses (app. EUR 800 per month) and other study related costs from their own financial resources. Scholarship recipients must still be able to fund their living costs, as per the requirements of the Finnish Immigration Service. Students who were selected during the application period 2016 to English-taught bachelor’s or master’s programmes will not be required to pay tuition fees and cannot apply for scholarships.
