Aalto Incentive-Based Scholarships
In addition to the tuition fee waivers, Aalto has incentive-based scholarships that reward fee-paying students (i.e. students paying either full or partial fee) who are making good progress in their studies.
The Incentive-Based Scholarship can be granted if you have completed 60 ECTS credits (or above) of studies from your approved personal study plan during one academic year. Students in international joint programmes can also apply for the scholarship if they are paying tuition fees to Aalto, and have completed the required 60 ECTS credits while studying at Aalto University during one academic year.
Please note that you cannot include credits which exceed the degree requirements when applying for the scholarship. In addition, thesis credits are taken into account towards the 60 ECTS requirement only after the whole thesis is registered, i.e. partial credits from thesis cannot be counted towards the required credits.
To apply for the Incentive-Based Scholarship, simply follow the information and instructions in the email sent out towards the end of spring term. If you are a fee-paying student and have not received the email by the end of May, or are not sure if you qualify, please contact the student services. The deadline for the scholarship applications is the end of October.
The scholarship is 1 500 € and it is paid towards the end of autumn term (or upon graduation, where applicable). The first round of scholarship decisions will be made by the end of September for applications returned in the summer months. Thereafter, the scholarship decisions are made once a month. You will receive the scholarship decision to your email.
The Incentive-Based Scholarship can be granted more than once.
