The applications for 2023 HiLIFE Trainees are accepted until 7.10. This opportunity is open for University of Helsinki BSc, MSc and Lic. (Med., Med. Vet.) students wanting to try out practical life science-themed research.

What do the HiLIFE Research Trainee Scholarships offer for students?


Up to 10 selected Trainees will receive financial support from Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) for a four-month training period. More specifically, students conducting internship at the University of Helsinki can receive up to €1500/month, and those applying to join research groups abroad up to €2000/month plus up to €1000 for travel costs.
