Grants and Scholarships

Who can apply?
The Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence program identifies the most talented students in the school. All candidates are considered based on their general application, and candidates will be selected by Nova SBE.

How does it work?
The program includes exclusive networking opportunities, social impact experiences, and a leadership program with business leaders as keynote speakers.

Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence offers an automatic reduction of 20 % in tuition fees based on candidates’ achievements, which can be assessed through a combination of three main factors: academic achievements; contribution to the academic life and community in previous studies; extracurricular activities and social engagement.

Fellows are also eligible for additional financial support that may bring the total discount to 50 % or even, in some cases, to 80 %.

As Fellows apply for this additional support, we ask them to please carefully consider their financial needs. The school has very limited resources to offer scholarships, and there is a large number of students with severe financial constraints. We are happy to offer scholarships to all Fellows, but if there is no absolute need and a Fellow decides not to request it, their solidarity will contribute to their colleagues’ tuition discounts.

This scholarship does not cover the enrollment fee. The applications for this scholarship are only available during the Fall Intake.

Who can apply? 
EU students with permanent residence in Portugal. 

How does it work? 
SASNOVA grants direct social support, scholarships and emergency aids, to 1st and 2nd cycle students whose average monthly family income is below 1.2 x RMMG (Guaranteed Minimum Monthly Remuneration), dictated by dispatch number 4183 from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education on March 6th 2007, as well as by the ruling law.

Scholarships granted by SASNOVA are paid directly by DGES. Monthly instalments will be paid by bank transfer by the dates given in time on the website.

How does it work?
Every academic year the Foundation awards two Amélia de Mello scholarships covering the tuition fee of two Nova SBE Masters’ students. Candidates’ assessment is based both on merit and financial need.

Who can apply?

Before being considered for this scholarship, students must secure their admission in a Nova SBE degree of their choice. 

It is recommended that prospective candidates apply well in advance of degree application deadlines, as scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis.

To apply, students must send an email to NOVAFRICA, with a CV, letter of enrolment in a Nova SBE program, and a motivation letter. 

Admitted students that look for a means-tested scholarship may apply by sending a motivation letter and the relevant tax return transcript to the Admissions Office within one month of being admitted into the program. Students will be requested to attend an interview with the Student Development Office.

This scholarship does not cover the enrollment fee. The applications for this scholarship are only available during the Fall and Spring Intakes.
