VisitKarelia Scholarship

Visit Karelia is North Karelia's Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), owned by the local municipalities. Collaboration between our Tourism Marketing and Management programme and Visit Karelia reached a new level in Autumn 2019 when Visit Karelia granted our students 9000€ annual scholarship fund. Altogether six students will receive 1500€ scholarship every year in June. The scholarship will be given with the following criteria:

3x1500€ for 1st-year students

To be eligible for the 1st-year scholarship a TMM student has to have studied at least 65 ECTS before June 15th. The top three eligible students ranked by the grade point average (GPA) of their first-year studies will be granted the 1500€ scholarship. 

3x1500€ for 2nd-year students

Students who have finished their master's degree before the end of July of their second-year studies are eligible for the 2nd-year scholarship. The top three eligible students based on their master's thesis grade will receive the scholarship. In case of a tie, students whose master's thesis have contribute more to the development of tourism in the North Karelia region will receive the scholarship.
