Application period for the travel grant: 20 May–2 June 2019.
The online application form (Aalto University - Free Mover Scholarship Application) will open on 20 May.
Decisions on travel grants are made on a case-by-case basis, within the limitations of the allocated budget. Applications for the travel grant must be submitted before the course starts.
