The Foundation for Business Students in Aalto University (KY Foundation) announces the main application period for exchange grants for 2018-19 open. The application period opens on Friday, April 6th, 2018 at 11 a.m.

The purpose of the grants is to support Aalto University School of Business BSc and MSc degree students in their international exchange studies.

In 2018, the grants are awarded by the foundation for expenses resulting from exchange studies in the academic year 2018-2019. In addition, the grants may be retroactively applied for by applicants who were on exchange in 2017-2018 (e.g. such free-mover exchange students who did not yet have a confirmed exchange place during the application period in 2017).

A decision on awarding a grant can be made after the student has received an exchange place in a foreign university of Business or another educational institute. The International Exchange Grant may primarily be awarded for an exchange period of at least one academic semester.

The International Exchange Grant must be applied for by using the electronic form by May 18th 2018 by 11:59 p.m. A link to the application form is available at the KY web page and at the KY Foundation web page The clarification of the exchange studies (free mover exchanges) should be returned as an attachment to the electronic application form.
