Scholarships

AYY awards scholarships to its members to support the internationalisation and communal activities of students of limited means and to encourage the successful combination of studies and student life.

AYY has three different scholarships:

Application rounds

Due to the global pandemic, AYY's Board of Directors has decided at its meeting 30/2020 not to distribute exchange scholarships in the autumn of 2020. All exchanges for the autumn semester can be applied in the next application round in spring 2021.

The application round for the spring 2021 takes place in March-April. The scholarships are awarded by the end of May. All three scholarships are awarded in the spring.

The application period for the autumn 2021 takes place in October-November. The scholarships are awarded and applicants informed by the end of December. Only exchange scholarships are awarded in the autumn.
