Our Merit Scholarships Program is split into two kinds:
University Entrance Exam Merit Scholarships: These are granted in line with the university entrance exam ranking. We offer full scholarships to the top five performers in the university entrance exam and partial scholarships to those who come sixth to tenth. These scholarships are not refundable by students and they will be maintained throughout the course, in accordance with the respective criteria specified in the Rules.
Academic Performance Merit Scholarships: These are granted to undergraduate students in line with their academic performance during the course. They consist of full or partial exemptions from monthly school fees. Academic performance merit scholarships will be awarded every six months, in accordance with accumulated academic performance (based on the Academic Performance Coefficient, or “CRA”). They are personal, non-transferable and non-refundable by students. If a candidate with a scholarship fails to enroll or a student drops out of their course, their scholarship will be suspended immediately.
These are short-term loans granted every six months in the form of school fee funding for undergraduate course students who have demonstrated strong academic performance and/or financial need. The resources come from the Fundação Getulio Vargas Scholarship Fund (Ordinance 17 of 2002), and the repayments are pegged to the General Market Price Index (IGP-M). The percentage granted to each student varies from 0% to 100% of the monthly school fees in the semester in question, decided by the FGV/EBAPE Scholarship Commission based on documentation submitted by applicant students. As part of this process, the school’s Controller will be consulted. Reimbursement is mandatory, and students must start to pay back their loan one year after joining their course. The granting and maintenance of refundable scholarships will depend on compliance with the respective criteria specified in the Scholarship Rules.
EBAPE Social Scholarships
These do not depend on students’ ranking in EBAPE’s selection process. Instead, they are intended mainly for students who did all their high school studies at a public school and who present an income tax declaration for their parents or guardians indicating the need for their scholarship. Students awarded an EBAPE Social Scholarship will be exempt from the payment of monthly school fees and/or charges and they will be given meal vouchers. In exchange, the students must obtain an accumulated academic performance of seven (7.0) points or more, participate in extension programs/projects within EBAPE that involve social issues, and dedicate themselves exclusively to the course.
Scholarships for Employees and Dependents
These are granted to FGV employees and their legal dependents, giving them full or partial exemption from monthly school fees for the school’s undergraduate courses, in accordance with Clause Eight of the Collective Labor Agreement (No. MR025546/2011). These scholarships are granted when requested by employees of the Institution.
