Social Support/Scholarships

Social Support Office

Social support is one of the guarantees for the implementation of the university right to education. Its objective is to provide students with better study conditions by providing financial support, specifically by awarding study scholarships, which the DSAE (Direção de Serviços de Apoio ao Estudante) commonly refers to as Direct Social Action. Integrated in the DGES (Directorate General for Higher Education), it is up to this entity, besides everything that concerns Public Higher Education, to manage and award social benefits to students of Non-Public Higher Education.

The Portuguese State through the Social Support System in Higher Education, allows all students to attend educational institutions, regardless of their socio-economic conditions. Social Support thus promotes the right to equal opportunities of access, attendance and success at school. Scholarships are awarded to students who, on their own, or through their family household, do not have the financial means to carry out their studies and who are economically needy.
