The Rise Together Scholarship can be applied to the first two years of study at Finlandia. After the completion of 56 credit hours and/or an associate’s degree, students can easily transfer into a bachelor’s degree program and become eligible for the $10,000 Finnish Strong Scholarship, which can be renewed on an annual basis.

Those can combine for more than $30,000 in potential aid.
