Get your master's thesis written! Grant

The aim of the grant is to promote the finalizing of the master’s thesis. The grant provides an intensive thesis writing period (one week) at one of the field stations of the University. The grant is meant for those students that are close to the end of their thesis work. The grant includes a week's accommodation at the station and meals.

You can apply for the grant if you are a basic-degree student at the University of Helsinki and you have not been awarded the grant before. The application round takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn.

If you receive a grant you have to contact the field station yourself to book the stay and decide the exact dates for using the grant. Please notice that at certain times during the year the field stations can be very busy (May–September). During busy periods, there might not be space for any grantees at the stations. The grant must be used during the period of time it has been awarded for. Grant recipients are also responsible for handling their transportation to and from the station. The grant does not cover travel costs.
