The grants awarded from the Foundations’ Post Doc Pool are intended for scholars, who have recently completed their doctoral degree and wish to conduct research abroad from Finland for at least six months. The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters is part of the Pool.
The Foundations’ Post Doc Pool (“Säätiöiden post doc -pooli”) is a grant resource set up by Finnish foundations, all members of the Association of Finnish Foundations, and intended for post-doctoral research abroad. The Pool’s aim is to make Finnish research more international by offering young scholars flexible funding from one source that covers all expenses of a research period abroad for 6 to 24 months, preferably 1 or 2 years. Post doc Pool has two application rounds per year: the spring application round in January, and the autumn application round from 15 August to 15 September.
