FCT updated the value of Studentships Research


The value of the research Studentships directly funded by FCT has been updated as of January 1, 2021. Taking into account the zero inflation in 2020 and the update of the national minimum wage, FCT increases the monthly value of all Studentships by 30 euros.

The update now approved is retroactive to January 1, 2021, and it is expected that the payment of the retroactive update will be completed, for all grantees, by the end of April.

This update falls under the Research Grant Holder Statute and FCT's Regulation of Studentships of Research.
