A limited number of scholarships are available for the selected students. The amount of the scholarships is € 500 / month for a maximum of 9 months for the first academic year. For the second academic year, the students are encouraged to find a thesis writing position with a salary.
All IMPIT applicants for the UEF are considered as scholarship candidates and the scholarships are issued for the candidates with highest selection points. Thus, there is no need to apply separately for a scholarship from the UEF. A student who is eligible for the Finnish student financial aid (opintotuki) provided by the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela) is not eligible to receive the above grant.
Scholarship holders will be decided based on the selection points specified in the admission requirements.
There are no tuition fees in the IMPIT program. However, a mandatory annual Student Union membership fee is charged for all students registered at the University of Eastern Finland. The membership fees for the academic year 2015-2016 are €124/full year and €65/semester.
