The Fulbright-CIMO grants are available for students in all fields (some restrictions in medical studies). Fulbright-CIMO grants are funded in cooperation with the Center for International Mobility (CIMO) of the Finnish Ministry of Education.

The Fulbright-CIMO grant is 1 500 euros per month. Grantees also receive a travel award of 1 600 dollars and an accident and sickness insurance for the grant period.

If you wish to apply for the Fulbright- CIMO grant as well as to the Fulbright Center fully funded or university sponsored grant, please submit only one application. All the applications are considered in each of the grant categories which the applicant is eligible for.
