The Finnish Concordia Fund supports women's studies

The Finnish Concordia Fund is an association which promotes the studies and scientific qualification of Finnish women. We award annually more than 140 scholarships to support women’s studies. The scholarship recipients are selected based on personal applications.

The scholarships are awarded to Finnish citizens, who are pursuing a doctoral degree or a degree from an upper secondary vocational school. Both work and travel scholarships are available for dissertation writers. Scholarships to students in vocational education are awarded based on financial reasons.

The application period for the scholarships of the Finnish Concordia Fund is once a year during 2‒31 January. Application attachments must be delivered to the association's address no later than 9th February. Overdue statements are disregarded.

The Finnish Concordia Fund will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2020. The original Concordia Fund was established already in 1885 to support women’s status and improve their education in Finland. In 1920, the Concordia Fund was divided into Finnish and Swedish speaking associations.
