The Finlandia Foundation National (FFN) is an organization dedicated to the perpetuation of Finnish-American culture through the provision of financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, especially those with strong and diverse ties to Finnish tradition and community. At Finlandia University, ideal candidates for the opportunities provided by FFN are students with strong academic performance and involvement in supporting Finnish cultural heritage.

Candidates must full-time students and have maintained a 3.0 GPA and are U.S. or Finnish citizens. Applicants will additionally be considered based on their course of study, and special consideration will be given to those who are engaged in the study of subjects relating to Finnish culture, or if they are of Finnish-American heritage. Scholarships from FFN can provide up to 3000 dollars in support, per student. Applications for this scholarship cycle must be submitted by Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

If you are interested in pursuing education in international co-operation and appreciation of Finnish-American culture, some programs at Finlandia University with related goals to FFN (and great candidates for the scholarship) are International BusinessHistory, and Finnish Studies Minor.
