Fulbright-EDUFI grantee Steffaney Wood doing her research

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.


Read the detailed application information for Finland. The final selection is made by the Fulbright Finland Foundation in Helsinki.

Please note that if you wish to apply for the Fulbright-EDUFI Fellowship as well as to the Fulbright Finland fully funded or university sponsored grant, submit only one application. All the applications are considered in each of the grant categories which the applicant is eligible for.

Application deadline for the 2020-2021 academic year:
October 8, 2019 at 5pm Eastern Time for At-Large applicants.
Candidates applying through a U.S. institution have usually a separate campus deadline for their Fulbright application which is typically 4-6 weeks earlier than the final October deadline.
