All scholarships require the applicant to be of Finnish heritage or a current member of the Finnish Credit Union. Scholarship applications are being accepted between April 1 and September 30.

We would like to congratulate our 2021 scholarship recipients. As always, it was very difficult choosing the recipients with many deserving applicants. To all who applied, we thank you and remind those who did not receive a scholarship to try again next year. Osuuspankki wishes you all the best in your continuing education.
