The dissertation completion grant is intended for the work required on a dissertation manuscript before it is submitted for preliminary examination. Dissertation completion grants may be awarded to doctoral students who have been admitted to pursue a doctoral degree by the University of Helsinki and are completing the degree at the University of Helsinki, and who belong to one of the doctoral programmes of the University of Helsinki. The doctoral student and his or her supervisor must together apply for the grant.
Applications may be submitted throughout the year. They must be submitted well in advance of the beginning of the intended grant period, typically about two months beforehand so that a decision on the grant can be made in time. There may be delays in processing the applications particularly during the summer and at the turn of the year.
The completed application form and its enclosures must be submitted to the Registry of the University (address: University of Helsinki / Registry and Central Archives, P.O. Box 3, 00014 University of Helsinki).
Applications are processed by the doctoral school that includes the doctoral programme the dissertation author belongs to. The decision on awarding the grant is made by the director of the doctoral school. Confirm from the coordinator of your doctoral school well in advance, whether there are any detailed instructions concerning the submission or schedule of processing the applications available. Please submit your application well in advance (at least two months) of the beginning of the intended grant period.
