Information about financial aid for summer studies can be found on the Kela website, in the Study during the summer months section. Kela’s financial aid for Higher Education students for the summer months is granted based on applications. You can be granted financial aid for the time period you applied it for. Applications for financial aid for summer studies are submitted online. Log in to Kela’s online customer service (in Finnish only) using your bank ID or a mobile ID. Please note that the financial aid for summer studies is deducted from your total eligibility for financial aid, which is calculated in months. Any summer months for which a student receives financial aid are also taken into account when checking the student’s annual income and monitoring their progress in their studies.
