Scholarships will be awarded up to a total of €8,000 to fund theses completed or in progress during 2023 at the level of at least a Master's degree. In principle, the scholarships will range from €500 to €1,000 for master’s theses.
The thesis must combine economic perspectives with responsible investment or corporate social responsibility. The free-form application should include details of the applicant's studies (including a transcript of records if these are pending), the timetable, any other funding and an assessment of the relevance of the thesis to Finnish investment activities. A CV and a research plan (or a completed thesis/interim report if available) should be attached. In addition, a supervisor's statement is required.
Applications will be evaluated by a working group consisting of representatives of Finsif member companies and three external experts.
Scholarship applications must be sent by 15 August 2023 by e-mail to info(at)finsif.fi.
