The CIMO Fellowships programme is open to young researchers (after Master-level but not post-doctorate) from all countries and from all academic fields.
The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months. The monthly allowance is 800-1 200 euros. The scholarship is intended to cover living expenses in Finland for a single person.
No additional allowance for housing is paid. Expenses due to international travel to and from Finland are not covered by CIMO.
How to apply?
The prerequisite for applying is that the visiting researcher must have established contacts with the Finnish host university.
Please note that a prospective student can not apply for a CIMO Fellowship independently. The Finnish university department wishing to host the student applies to CIMO for the grant – in other words, the applicant must be the hosting Finnish university.
There are no annual application deadlines in the CIMO Fellowship programme -that is, applications may be considered at all times. However please note that applications should be submitted at least 3 months before the intended scholarship period. Please note that although the application form is in Finnish, Swedish and English the guidelines are only in Finnish since, as stated above, it is the Finnish host department which applies for the grant from CIMO.
