Fulbright-EDUFI Fellowship

Fulbright-EDUFI Fellowships (previously Fulbright-CIMO grants) are primarily targeted for doctoral research in any Finnish institution of higher education, research or other acceptable organization.
Karli Storm, Fulbright-CIMO doctoral student grantee 2013-2014, at the VERA Centre for Russian and Border Studies, tells why she enjoys studying at the University of Eastern Finland.

The Fulbright-EDUFI Fellowship is 1500 euros per month. Grantees also receive a travel award of 1600 dollars and a supplementary accident and sickness benefit (ASPE) for the grant period.

Alumni who successfully complete the Fulbright U.S. Student Program are eligible for 12 months of non-competitive eligibility (NCE) hiring status within the federal government, with the possibility of extensions if certain criteria are met.

What is the Fulbright Finland Foundation?

The Fulbright Finland Foundation is a private, independent, not-for-profit organization based in Helsinki, Finland. The Foundation’s aim is 

  • to promote a wider exchange of knowledge and professional talents through educational contacts between Finland and the United States, and 
  • to support the internationalization of Finnish higher education institutions.

What Makes the Fulbright program unique?

  • In addition to the grant, the Fulbright Finland Foundation offers the grantees several additional benefits and free support services, as well as an access to a global, multi-professional network.
  • We are looking for applicants who want to impact the future and to make a difference – applicants who want to facilitate positive change, develop and advance their own profession or discipline, and find solutions to national and international challenges in their field.
  • The grantees also act as ambassadors for the Fulbright Finland Foundation, their home country, and their home organization and, in this way, do their part in sharing their home country and culture and contributing to the relations between Finland and the U.S.
