The purpose is also to highlight matters and activities that can promote mental wellbeing in study communities. This year the campaign is exceptionally fully arranged and implemented on social media.

5. Kela: Important information for students: Apply now for financial aid for the summer months
Financial aid is granted for example for lecture courses, set book exams, on-the-job-training or for working on your final project or thesis. Financial aid is available in the form of a study grant and as a government guarantee for student loans. Students who have been granted general housing allowance will continue to receive the allowance regardless of whether they are studying during the summer or not. However, they must apply for a review of their allowance if they have earnings from a summer job.
Applications for summer financial aid can be filed on the OmaKela e-service portal at www.kela.fi/asiointi (in Finnish) or www.fpa.fi/etjanst (in Swedish), or by filling in and printing out form OT 15e ‘Notification of changes, Financial aid for students’.
