Scholarships in Portugal

Portugal provides students with only few  scholarships
Although Portugal has made cuts in its education spending due to the financial crisis, higher education remains a priority for the government and state scholarships are still offered. There are also a large number of private scholarships available. The emphasis in the provision of scholarships is on post-graduate education, since basic fees in state universities for undergraduate degrees remain moderate – a little over 1,000€ a year.
