CIMO Fellowships





The CIMO Fellowships programme is open to young Doctoral level students and researchers from all countries and from all academic fields. Master's level studies or post-doctoral studies/research are not supported in the programme.


The primary target group in the CIMO Fellowship programme are such Doctoral level students who will be doing their Doctorate (or Double Doctorate) at a Finnish university. Visiting Doctoral-level students and researchers who are doing their Doctorate degree at some foreign university can also be considered eligible, provided that the motivation letter of the hosting Finnish university department presents exceptionally good grounds for such an application.

The programme is open for candidates of all foreign nationalities. However, when decisions on scholarship are made, emphasis is given to applicants from Russia, China, India, Chile, Brazil and North America.

The scholarship period may vary from 3 to 12 months. The monthly allowance is 1500 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.

NB: the CIMO Fellowship is a start-up grant rather than a full degree scholarship, so if you for example receive a CIMO Fellowship for 12 months, after that period you should seek other sources of funding for the remaining period of your studies/research.

If you are already residing in Finland, please note that the Doctoral students/researchers for whom the Finnish universities can apply for a CIMO Fellowship should not have resided in Finland for more than one (1) year prior to submitting a CIMO Fellowship application.
