Master and Doctorate Scholarships


    The stricto sensu graduate programs offered by ITA are free. Approval of the candidate's registration does not necessarily imply the granting of a scholarship. Masters and PhD students can apply for institutional scholarships made available to ITA by CAPES and CNPq, as long as they are enrolled full time and exclusively. Scholarships are awarded through a selection process in each graduate program, based on academic merit and the study program to be developed at ITA. It is also possible to apply for scholarships offered by FAPESP (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo), through a project prepared with the Advisor, which can be submitted in any month (continuous flow), except January.

    CAPES / CNPq / FAPESP scholarships have a maximum duration of 24 months for Master's and 48 months for Doctorate. In the case of CAPES / CNPq these deadlines are counted from the student's admission, always considering March and August as months of admission. In general, CAPES / CNPq scholarship holders cannot accumulate scholarships with an employment relationship (see explanatory note in the attached file below). A Master's student with a CAPES scholarship, who finishes the Master's degree in up to 18 months and wants to be promoted to a PhD, may be awarded a PhD scholarship, upon request to CAPES, through the coordination of the Program.

    It is also possible for the doctoral student to apply for the Doctorate Sandwich Program Abroad (PDSE). The PDSE is a CAPES institutional program with the objective of qualifying human resources through the granting of sandwich doctoral scholarship quotas to Brazilian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that have a recommended and recognized Doctorate course with a grade equal to or higher than 3.
