Scholarship programme

“I strongly benefitted from listening to other scholars and exchanging information in a stimulating and highly professional international context. Most importantly, the week materialized into a strong network of researchers having common interests, though different backgrounds.“

Paola Cavanna, Ph.D candidate at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy), HEUNI scholarship recipient 2016

Since its establishment, HEUNI has granted about 200 short-time scholarships for post-graduate students and junior practitioners in the field of criminal policy.

Currently, instead of individual scholarships HEUNI yearly invites junior scholars to thematic expert meetings (2-3 days in Helsinki).
