2024 Finland Government Scholarship application to studies starting in autumn (September) is arranged annually in January (3–17 Jan in 2024).

Joint application also means that you can apply to up to six degree programmes with one single application. A small number of degree programmes may also offer a January study start option. To these, the joint application period is usually open in September (28 Aug–11 Sept in 2024). Note however that the September joint application has a limited selection of programmes on offer compared to the January joint application.
