Grants awarded by the Fulbright Finland Foundation to the U.S. are for Finnish citizens except the Fulbright Finland Travel Grants for Research Collaboration which has no citizenship requirement. If you wish to apply for the Fulbright program to the U.S. and you are not a Finnish citizen, please find information on further Fulbright opportunities by contacting the Fulbright Commission or U.S. Embassy in the country of your citizenship.

Future Changemakers

Fulbright Finland grant program offer Finnish and American students, scholars, teachers, and professionals unique possibilities to carry out study and research projects. The purpose of the Fulbright Finland grant programs is to increase mutual understanding between the peoples of Finland and the United States by means of educational and cultural exchange, and to promote international cooperation for educational and cultural advancement. The Fulbright grantees are cultural ambassadors and future changemakers whose projects have potential for a large impact while building bridges between United States and Finland.

In addition to the grant stipend, grantees are offered a substantial package of additional services and benefits, including a free suplementary accident and sickness benefit, personal advising services and training sessions before departure to the United States or after arrival to Finland, as well as access to seminars, events and networking opportunities organized by the Fulbright program during the grantee's grant period.

Finland is one of the most active Fulbright groups in the world and they are always doing things. I don’t think a lot of people here realize these opportunities are out there for them.
