Scholarships for Annual Courses on Portuguese Language and Culture and on Oriental Languages and Cultures

The Fundação Oriente awards scholarships to applicants from Far Eastern countries who wish to attend courses on Portuguese language and culture and to Portuguese citizens who wish to attend courses on languages and cultures at official institutions of countries in the Indian and Pacific region.

Scholarships are granted for one academic year. However, scholarships for the attendance of courses on Oriental languages and cultures may, on an exceptional basis, be extended for the same or shorter periods, up to a maximum of three academic years.

Annual scholarships are granted to applicants wishing to improve their knowledge of the language in question. Applicants must have learned the language for at least one year at a recognized school.
Applications will not be accepted from students already living in Portugal who wish to improve their knowledge of Portuguese language and culture and/or have already been granted a scholarship from another institution and for the same purpose.

The scholarship holder is granted a monthly amount established every year.
Tuition fees at Portuguese public institutions will be paid directly by the Fundação.
Travel expenses (return ticket) between the scholarship holder’s permanent place of residence and the destination country will be paid for by the Fundação Oriente.
The Foundation will choose the Portuguese universities where the courses in Portuguese language and culture will be taught.
