The Faculty of Architecture at University of Porto aims to support and reward students that prove their learning and research abilities throughout their years of study within the faculty. This is why several merit scholarships are awarded to high profile students by the Pedagogical Council of the faculty to eligible students.
Students can become eligible to a merit scholarship after their first year of study. The weighted average of their marks should have a value of at least 16 in order to make them eligible for a scholarship in their next year of study. The average is calculated using two decimals and in case of equality, the student with the most recent birthdate will be prioritized.
