The University of Oulu Graduate School currently has no possibility to provide fellowships for doctoral studies; doctoral students need to find funding from other sources. In general, doctoral training is funded by various national, or international doctoral programmes, grants from foundations, carrying out teaching duties in the University, or from the research group/project funds. Each student’s doctoral training plan must include a funding plan, which describes the planned sources of funding for the training (eg. possible grants from foundations, teaching duties, etc). In addition, the other costs directly related to the research project should be taken into account in the doctoral training plan.
A lot of information about research funding sources can be found from the Project Services of University of Oulu, and their newsletter for research funding. The University of Turku maintains a comprehensive database of the sources of research funding, which is available also for the doctoral students of the University of Oulu. There you will find all the foundations and other non-research funding agencies from which you can apply for a grant for doctoral training, travel, etc. In addition, there is in development a corresponding Aurora-database, where you can found funding sources both from Finland and abroad. Also, Finnish foundations can be found from here.
