Excellent Bachelor's students were awarded the Ilkka Kontula Foundation scholarships

Personal scholarships are 1 000 euros.
The Ilkka Kontula Foundation scholarships are awarded annually to successful students.

Ilkka Kontula, LL.M., M.Sc. (Econ. & Bus. Admin), who died in 2012, studied both at the Helsinki School of Economics and the University of Helsinki. With his bequest, he wanted to give assistance to students in their everyday lives. Thus, the Ilkka Kontula Foundation awards annual incentive scholarships to students of the School of Business and the Faculty of Law at the University of Helsinki.

Scholarships are awarded annually to successful students who have completed at least 80 credit units during their three first terms. Personal scholarships are 1 000 euros. The first scholarships were awarded in 2014.

The School of Business Dean Ingmar Björkman awarded the diplomas at a special ceremony organised in the Undergraduate Centre, Otaniemi, on 14 May 2018.
