The U.S. Embassy Finland is pleased to announce the recipient of American Studies Grant 2021.

Congratulations to Teppo Ahonen of the University of Jyväskylä whose master’s thesis is titled “British and American War Correspondents during the Winter War.”

And the Embassy received so many qualified applications from students across Finland, we decided to award a honorable mention scholarship to Jarno Laitinen. He is a future English teacher at the University of Jyväskylä whose master’s thesis is titled “The Features of Pronunciation Contributing to the Intelligibility and Comprehensibility in Finnish Spoken English.”

Since 2006, the Embassy has awarded Finnish students working on their master’s thesis with a topic related to the United States. More information about the program is available on our website. Congratulations again to Teppo and Jarno!
