Further information

The Foundation for Economic Education provides funding for long-term postgraduate studies and research abroad. Grants are awarded on the basis of accurate study or research plans. Exchange programme studies included in master’s degrees are not eligible for grants, nor are single course trips, excursions or practical training trips. This limitation does not necessarily apply to projects by teams or entities. Funding for them will be considered based on the quality of the plans made for the project.

The grant applicants do not necessarily need to name a particular special fund in their application. Instead, grants are allocated by the Foundation according to possible criteria mentioned in each particular fund’s rules.

How to apply

The application period is usually from May to August each year. A grant application should be submitted via the electronic grant system.
