Scholarships are Available

SiPN/FLAD Partial Scholarships

FLAD is a private Portuguese non-profit foundation. This means that our programs are created with a true non-profit spirit in mind, and this is why our program fees are so much lower than competing programs in Western Europe. Besides our strategic grant partnerships with the U.S. Fulbright Program and other non-profits that promote international exchange, FLAD has committed itself to use any positive revenues generated from this program by adding more merit-based student scholarships. This means that as our program grows in terms of recruitment, more and more scholarships will become available to our applicants.

In the meantime, FLAD has committed €10,000 in partial scholarships for 2016-2017


Starting in 2016, SiPN alumni will enjoy priority access to a second Fulbright grant to Portugal, which will be funded entirely by the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD). FLAD presently co-funds one of the Fulbright – Luso-American Foundation Study/Research Grants to Portugal. These 8-month student grants to Portugal are open to US citizens with at least a Bachelor’s degree and who are pursuing masters or PhD level research. Applicants who are SiPN alumni and whose candidacy passes through the initial selection process conducted by the International Institute for Education will enjoy priority access to the pool for this second Fulbright, dramatically increasing your chances of being selected for a Fulbright.
