The Aalto University Scholarship program aims to acknowledge outstanding non-EU/EEA students. The scholarships are awarded based on merit and through a competitive selection process. In the Master's admissions process, scholarships are granted during the academic evaluation phase as part of the degree program's admission process. The most qualified applicants who are subject to tuition fees may receive the scholarship for each study option. The evaluation criteria can be found on the study option websites. The number of scholarships available for each degree program is limited and depends on the total number of non-EU/EEA students selected for the program.
