3 – Scholarship Endowment Fund Association: This is a fund created by former students of the São Paulo Law School, in order to let students in financial hardship obtain resources while dedicating themselves exclusively to their studies at the São Paulo Law School (during the first three years of their course). The scholarships are worth up to R$850 per month. To be awarded, they need to be approved by the Endowment Fund Association.
The funding of scholarships, to be repaid with interest limited to the General Market Price Index (IGP-M), is enabled by donations from companies and individuals, as well as repayment by former scholarship holders. Currently, around 30% of undergraduate law students benefit from the program.
Types: study (funding of 20% to 100% of monthly school fees, for six months); study materials; accommodation and transport; and meals.
