Grants for Doctoral Studies


The Oulu University Scholarship Foundation supports mainly full-time work on a doctoral thesis within four years. However, part-time work on a doctoral thesis is also supported. The Foundation will only allocate personal grants for doctoral thesis research. Travel grants are not funded. Grants are typically from 3.000 to 5.000 euros.

The prerequisite for applying for grants is a doctoral training plan approved by the University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS) for people who have started in 2012 or later. For those having started earlier, some other approved plan is required, and the applicant must be registered at UniOGS.
