The Selim Eskelin Foundation annually awards grants to students of the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts. The grants are primarily intended to support studies and are primarily aimed at those studying singing.

The scholarship board can make exceptions to the general rule at its discretion, but in those cases the question has been studies that indirectly support the art of singing at the Academy, for example lied pianists, accompanists and choir directors.

According to Selim Eskelin's will, "When distributing scholarships, especially those students who are children of needy members of the Suomen Kanttoriurkuriliitto ry, its predecessors or a similar Swedish-speaking organization are taken into account". However, this is not a decisive basis for receiving a grant.

Grants awarded have averaged 2 000 – 6 000 € per scholarship recipient.

The foundation has been handing out grants since 1974. The total number of grants and the application period are published annually in June.
