Applications and Admissions

Applicants should hold a Master’s degree diploma in Economics, Finance, or related fields, and should have a good level of competence in English. If you don’t have a Master’s Degree but expect to obtain it by June 2019, your application for the fellowship can also be considered.

The following documentation is needed:

  1. Curriculum Vitae;
  2. Transcript of records of undergraduate and graduate degrees with full list of courses and grades. Candidates who have not yet finished their graduate program should provide a certificate of enrolment with, if available, the full list of grades achieved to date;
  3. Recommendations in the form of two letters of reference, which should be sent directly by referees (as explained in the Online Application Instructions available at the application platform);
  4. Statement of purpose - including areas of interest and potential supervisors;
  5. Certificate of results for the GRE (Graduate Records of Examination) or GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). Applicants who hold, or will shortly hold, a Nova SBE Master’s degree are not required to submit GRE results.


Applications for the 2019/20 intake are open from 12 December 2018 until 31 January 2019.

Exceptional applications may be considered after the deadline.

Applicants may be asked for a subsequent interview, which may be conducted by phone in case of need.

Applicants will be notified of final decisions by email before 15 April 2019.
