Scholarships in Finland

Finland is not a country on many people’s map. It is clear why this is the case. As a country, it is relatively isolated, being located deep at the far end of the Baltic Sea, in isolation, even farther north of St. Petersburg in Russia.

Not only this, but Finland charges no tuition fees, although living costs must be covered independently. Thankfully, there are plenty of scholarships and grants available.
