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.
Why should I take a gap year? This break in your ordinary life will give you the opportunity to get to know the reall you. By connecting with other cultures and living international experiences you will grow to a whole new level. You can travel, do an internship, volunteer, work to earn some money, learn a new language, among other wonderful experiences – taking a gap year is a great opportunity to reflect on who you are and what you want to do in your future, before embarking in your master’s degree (if that is the case). This period of time will impact your social, professional and academic life, as well as have social impact on your chosen destinations. It's the perfect time do develop soft skills, such as autonomy, creativity, responsibility, communication skills and many other.
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.
