Want to take a year off to make a difference in the world and really challenge yourself?

If you have recently graduated from the Bachelor’s degree at Nova SBE, or are finishing your Bachelor’s degree this academic year, you can apply to the Nova SBE Gap Year Scholarship, brought to you by a partnership between Nova SBE and Gap Year Portugal.

You can tailor you own gap year, if it fits your goals and dreams - it's the perfect plan.

The project winner will receive a scholarship (5.000€ for a single application or 6.500€ when traveling in pairs) that financially supports your gap year.

For the winner(s) and applicants that present the 10 best projects, and that have been accepted as a master’s degree student at Nova SBE, it will be possible to delay the beginning of the master’s degree for one year so as to carry out their project.
