How do I apply for the insurance?
If you have been awarded more than one grant or scholarship, you will need to submit a separate insurance application for each individual grant or scholarship. Each application must contain your personal details, information concerning the awarded grant or scholarship, the period of time during which the grant work will take place, and an itemised list of expenses if a portion of the grant funds have been awarded to cover expenses accrued during the work process. If you list your expenses on the application, it may affect your insurance level.
You can fill out the insurance application online in Finnish or Swedish.
Alternatively, you can fill out the downloadable insurance application form in English (see instructions). Once you have completed, printed and signed the application, you can mail it to Mela, or you can scan it and send it as an e-mail attachment.
If you wish to send the application as an e-mail attachment, please use Mela's secure e-mail service and select 'Insurance matters' as recipient of the message.
