Scholarships and Finance Support

In addition to Social Scholarships for Higher Education, there are several other scholarship programs such as Merit Scholarships, destined to recognize and reward students with high academic performance, and also Support Scholarships for students with financial needs and who, simultaneously, have recognized academic merit.

Merit Scholarships

Merit Scholarships are awarded to students attending university at the University of Lisbon with exceptional academic performance, regardless of their income. These scholarships are awarded in accordance with the Merit Scholarship Regulation for Students of Higher Education Institutions (Order No. 13531/2009, 9th of June). The value of the scholarship is defined annually by the State, corresponding to five times the national minimum wage at the beginning of the academic year in which it is awarded.

The award of this scholarship is the responsibility of the University of Lisbon’ Rector  and the selection of students is done by the Pedagogical Council of Técnico. Consult more information:

Support Scholarships

Support for Continuing Studies are cash benefits, directly granted by third parties. They are intended to fill specific situations arising from contingencies or financial difficulties with a negative impact on the normal academic performance and academic record of the Técnico students, 1st or 2nd Cycle, which cannot be properly resolved within the scope of the support provided by the Social Action system for Higher Education.

Taking into account the economic situation of Portugal and the financial needs that affect many students, Técnico has sought to establish several partnerships with the goal of creating Scholarship Programs. Thus, several scholarships are awarded each year to support the continuation of studies, which aim to finance the costs of attending a course in higher education (school expenses, accommodation and general expenses).

HOVIONE SOLIDARY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM IN EDUCATION

As part of a protocol signed between Instituto Superior Técnico and Hovione FarmaCiencia SA, the “HOVIONE Solidary in Education” Scholarship Program was created.

In each academic year, scholarships are awarded to students of Environmental Engineering, Biological Engineering and Chemical Engineering, with recognized academic merit and, simultaneously, financial needs for the continuation of studies.

E.A.S.S. SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

At the initiative of Elísio Alexandre Soares dos Santos and his descendants, a protocol was signed with Instituto Superior Técnico to create the E.A.S.S.

These scholarships are intended to support students with high academic potential, who, due to socioeconomic need, do not have the means to finance all the expenses inherent to their course, Degree or Integrated Master. This program provides for the payment of school expenses, accommodation and a monthly fee for general expenses.

ENGº AUGUSTO RAMALHO-ROSA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

As part of a protocol signed between Instituto Superior Técnico and VÊTEJO – Sociedade Imobiliária de Acquisições Patrimoniais, S.A., the “Engº Augusto Ramalho-Rosa” Scholarship Program was created.
