Fulbright-Tampere University Scholar Award for U.S. Scholars in Finland 2019/20

The Fulbright-Tampere University Scholar Award offers U.S. scholars the opportunity to conduct research at the Tampere University for a period of 3-12 months.

In January 2019, the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology merged to a new foundation-based university called Tampere University. Tampere University is located in three campuses; Central Campus, Hervanta Campus and Kauppi Campus.

Tampere University is fully integrated into the surrounding society and working life. As an excellent research environment, the city of Tampere offers the University a living laboratory in which to test, experiment, learn from mistakes and gain insight.
