Ilkka Kontula, LL.M., M.Sc. (Econ. & Bus. Admin), who passed away in 2012, studied both at the Helsinki School of Economics (today Aalto University School of Business) and the University of Helsinki. With his bequest, he wanted to support 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 to students who have an excellent grade point average (GPA) and who have completed at least 80 credit units during their first three terms. Personal scholarships are worth 1000 euros. 

Here are the students who are awarded the scholarship in 2022.

Alumna Mira Hänninen: It is inspiring to see that my own work can have a positive impact on society

Our alumna Mira Hänninen, who currently works at Neste, applied to the School of Business for a master’s degree in Business Law because she wanted a more practical business perspective in her law studies. "The most rewarding thing about the studies was that we didn't just study the content of regulation, but also considered what kind of practical impact it has on companies' business and decision-making."
