Study in Finland

The Cooperative Center for Study Abroad Storyteller Scholarship encourages student participation in CCSA programs by offering a means for students to tell their own CCSA stories.

The awardee is expected to provide CCSA quality writing and/or imagery. The deliverable product must be appropriate for the CCSA web site, although the student may propose alternative formats such as a blog or a YouTube project.

Finlandia University is a proud member of the CCSA, which means FinnU students have an inside track at these scholarships. Below is additional information on the scholarship.
