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.
The Fulbright-EDUFI Fellowship is 1500 euros per month (paid for nine months).
Grantees also receive a travel award of 1600 dollars and a supplementary accident and sickness benefit (ASPE) for the grant period.
Additionally, grantees receive the full support services provided by the Fulbright Finland Foundation. The grantees are also provided a variety of networking opportunities throughout the year in Finland.
Education loan deferment: While on a Fulbright in Finland, U.S. Student grantees have often been able to defer loans. Fulbright grants usually fall under the Graduate Fellowship deferment category. Grantee should confirm this with the lending institution.
Alumni who successfully complete the Fulbright U.S. Student Program are eligible for 12 months of non-competitive eligibility (NCE) hiring status within the U.S. federal government, with the possibility of extensions if certain criteria are met.
