Created in 2012 by three alumni, the beNova Scholarship wants to support bright students who need financial assistance so that they can pursue their studies and achieve their full potential. For this, students may receive support in the tuition fee value and coverage of their transportation and food expenses, depending on each student’s situation.
The beNova Scholarships may also help with expenses associated with meals, transportation, or tuition fee, depending on the evaluation of each student’s situation, the cohort of applications received, and the program’s financial availability.
Since the beginning of the program in the 2012/2013 academic year, 147 students have been benefiting from the BeNova Scholarship.
Alongside our generous partners, we hope to create more opportunities for all those seeking quality education.
The Tiago Pires Scholarship was created in memory of Tiago Castanheira Pires (Bachelor's in Economics 2002) in 2016 for his outstanding personal and academic achievements, aiming to recognize bright and entrepreneurial minds. In partnership with Mais Longe Foundation, Nova SBE created the beNova Mais Longe Scholarship. The Mais Longe Foundation is dedicated to promoting education and sharing democratic and humanitarian values, thus facilitating access to education and creating a fairer society.
