NOVA IMS Social Mobility Scholarship



NOVA IMS Social Mobility Scholarship

NOVA IMS, in line with the guidelines of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, believes that ensuring equitable access to higher education and vertical mobility between levels of study is essential to improve social cohesion, equal opportunities and quality of life for citizens. Financial constraints should not stop candidates from pursuing their dreams. Assuming this fundamental principle, NOVA IMS offers a social mobility scholarship for students with a proven need for financial aid. This mission is associated with the development of the fundamental pillars of the Inclusion Policy of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, universality, social mobility and talent.


This scholarship can cover 20 %, 50 %, or 100 % of the tuition fee value of the Master’s program.

When a student is granted different scholarships within NOVA IMS, the funding cannot exceed 70 % of the total amount of the tuition fee for the Master’s program, except in cases where the funding comes entirely from a 100 % social mobility scholarship.

The scholarship prize does not fund the amounts related to the application fee, the enrolment fee, the Double Degree Program, the Master Degree in Geospatial Technologies, the amount value associated with additional semesters, or exchange programs.


To apply, the admitted candidates to the Master’s program need to show their interest, by filling the form and submitting the most recent household tax return properly identified. The documents must be originals or copies, accompanied by a certified translation into English or Portuguese if they are written in any other language. The application must be submitted here (information only available in Portuguese). 

Applications are available for the programs that starts in September..

Scholarships are competitive, and funding is limited. We are eager to invest in talented and ambitious new students, so we encourage you to submit your application as early as possible.

The Social Mobility scholarship is granted for the entire duration of the program.
