The scholarship is applied for when applying for admission to the university by filling out the relevant section of the application form. The decision about the scholarship is made in connection with student admission, and the student is notified of the matter in the letter of acceptance.
The scholarship exempts the student partially (80 %) from the tuition fee. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance to the university and their scholarship by 27 March 2020.
The scholarship is personal, programme-dependent (and thus cannot be transferred to another programme) and it is awarded for two academic years. The first year scholarship is awarded on the basis of the student's academic achievements described in the admission criteria. However, the scholarship awarded for the second year is conditional and tied to the progress of the student’s studies. The prerequisite for the scholarship to continue in the second academic year is that the student has completed a minimum of 55 ECTS credits of studies that are included in his or her degree during the first academic year (transferred credits are not taken into consideration). If the above prerequisite is not met, the conditional scholarship awarded for the second academic year can be discontinued on this basis. The student is heard in the matter before a decision to discontinue the scholarship is made.
