To support the costs associated with studying abroad, consider researching for possible grants, scholarships to fund your time abroad. 

It is highly recommended that you search and apply for additional financial support from companies or public/private institutions and embassies that may have funds to sponsor study abroad students.

It is important, you do not calculate receiving possible scholarships or grants within your budget overview, as you can never be sure if you will actually receive them. If you do, see it as an extra income.

Erasmus+ Grant

The ERAMUS+ is a contribution to the costs for travel and subsistence during the period of study abroad. All students allocated to study in Erasmus+ Participant country are welcomed to apply.

The International Office will oversee the application process, meaning that the application and distributions process will happen internally, however, the Erasmus+ grant is financed by the European Commission, as a result, CATÓLICA-LISBON cannot guarantee that every eligible student will receive an Erasmus+ Grant. 

Selection Criteria 

Grant distribution is made according to students weighted average, the same average used in the selection process of Exchange Program Application (excluding Buddy Program points ).
