The goal of the CIMO Fellowships programme is to support students and researchers from all countries and academic fields who wish to carry out their academic activity in Finland for a period of time between 3 and 12 months. The fellowships will consist of a monthly allowance intended to cover the living expenses of the grant holder, whose amount may vary between 900€ and 1200€.
The visiting student or researcher should contact a Finnish higher education institution to serve as host university; the appropriate department of this university should then apply to CIMO for the grant on behalf of the student or researcher. All applications should be submitted at least 5 months before the intended scholarship period. The following documents should be provided along with the application: a motivation letter from the applicant, complete CV of the scholarship candidate and a short research plan (between 2 and 5 pages). Two printed and signed copies of the application form with the required attachments must be sent.
