You can apply for a place in the winter school if you meet the following criteria:
- you are a Russian or a Ukrainian post-graduate student
- you have been in touch with researchers in Finnish universities before submitting your application
- you are interested in working in a research team in a Finnish university after the winter school
- you can work in English.
You can only attend the winter school once. We also require that you have not previously received a CIMO Fellowship, EDUFI Fellowship or the Finnish Government Scholarship Pool grant from CIMO or the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI).
If you have already secured an interest from a Finnish research team to work with you, this will be a significant advantage to your application.
