The Scholarship Committee of the Postgraduate Program in Portuguese Language and Literatures is responsible for the distribution of scholarships granted by the major fomenting agencies - CAPES, CNPq and FAPEMIG, for the Master's and Doctoral degrees.

Currently, the Program holds the following number of scholarships, according to their agencies: CAPES (41 scholarships, being 23 for the Doctoral Degree: 11 for modality I, and 12 for modality II; 18 for the Master's Degree: 3 for modality I and 15 for modality II, being accounted for, in such allotment, the loan quotas); CNPq (08 scholarships, being 02 for the Doctoral Degree and 06 for the Master's); FAPEMIG (06 scholarships, being 03 for the Doctoral Degree, and 03 for the Master's).

Only scholarships given with dissertation defenses and confirmed by the agencies are available to be granted to the selected candidates.

In addition to the regulations established by each agency, the Program grants scholarships in accordance to the following criteria:

  • Number of Master's and Doctorate's quotas made available annually to the courses by CAPES, CNPq and FAPEMIG agencies;
  • Order of student's classification in the selection process.

The acceptance of the candidate by the selective process does not imply the grant of a scholarship.

The allocation of a scholarship to a student does not create any employment bond with the beneficiary, even if one eventually provides services resulted from the usufruct of the scholarship granted.

The limit deadline of scholarship concession is determined by Resolution 01/2018.

Students who are granted scholarships should:

  • Fulfill and update biannually CNPq-LATTES' data system;
  • Act in accordance to the demands of the funding agencies (established in the Terms of Commitment/Acceptation signed by the student);
  • Be up to date with their postgraduate course;

  • Not fail in any postgraduate course;
  • Deliver a biannual activities' report with the approval of their advisor;
