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.

The first grant may be allocated for a fast start after one year from starting the research, and another after approximately one year before completing the doctoral thesis. The Executive Committee of the Foundation will consult the University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS) and the faculties when reviewing the applications.

Only applications that have been delivered in accordance with the instructions, together with the attachments will be taken into consideration.  

The grant recipient may not be employed by the university during the grant period.
