Selected candidates may be beneficiaries of scholarships. The granting of a scholarship depends on the availability of the institutional quota of scholarships (CAPES and CNPq) allocated to the Program. The prioritization of scholarship allocation in the semester of admission depends on the candidate's performance in the selection process.

There are also grants linked to the research projects of the advisors. These grants are administered directly by the advisors.

The Program recommends admitted candidates to apply for scholarships from FAPESP or other funding agencies.
