Due to the efforts of all its schools, NOVA University Lisbon, through Serviços de Ação Social da Universidade NOVA de Lisboa – SASNOVA [NOVA Social Action Services] created a scholarship program with private funding – the Bolsas Geração NOVA [NOVA Generation Scholarships].
Vowing to its mission, which guarantees that no student is without access to higher education due to financial limitations, SASNOVA created a new scholarship program. Bolsas Geração NOVA [NOVA Generation Scholarships] intend to help those who can't get any social support or aren't eligible to be covered by the Directorate General for Higher Education scholarships.
Given the increasing academic costs over the last few years and the students' growing requests, the Bolsas Geração NOVA [NOVA Generation Scholarships] stands out due to its diversified offer, i. e. being adaptable to the student's current needs, and are flexible about fee totals and payments.
This is a pioneering project that was only possible due to the NOVA Generation community – in which former scholarship holders, Alumni, companies, civil society, and the NOVA community take part – that, through its solidarity, manages to help those who can't get help and also provide stationery, digital tools, computers, housing, catering services, among others.
Applications for the 2021/22 academic year will be available starting September 2021. However, if you're a student and wish to know the evaluation criteria and prepare your application, you can visit this page (in Portuguese).
If, in turn, you wish to help promote academic and professional talent by helping cover part of these students' rejected social support, you can make your donation here (page in Portuguese).
