Foundation for Aalto University Science and Technology

Foundation's grant application and deed of gift forms

Foundation for Aalto University Science and Technology awards grants for MSc and Doctoral theses. The grants awarded by the Foundation are based on donations from Finnish industrial companies, who may direct their gift to the Foundation to be used for research in a field of technology of their choice.

For students/researchers: Application forms for scholarships and travel grants

  • Please attach a study record transcript (can be an unofficial version)!
  • Return the application, signed by your supervising Professor, to the Foundation Office no later than one week before the meeting (see here for meeting times).
  • Scholarships are awarded for MSc, Licenciate and Doctoral theses at Aalto CHEM, ELEC, ENG, SCI and Department of Architecture. The Foundation awards scholarships based on donations. Thus a company must first make a donation to a specific field of technology. If you cannot think of a suitable company, you might ask your professor.
