This Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation programme aims to “detect and support the talent of exceptional students in Portuguese higher education, promoting their talent and stimulating their initiation into research”.

With a value of up to 3,500 euros, the grant supports the pursuit of the scholarship holders’ studies, as well as “talent enrichment activities”, such as participation in conferences and summer schools, internships, language courses, the acquisition of books, among others.

All scholarship holders also have the opportunity to take part in an immersive talent enrichment programme, with tutors of recognised merit and monitoring by a Scientific Committee dedicated to each area of the programme.
