In this case, the final classification will be obtained by the following formula (0,6 x MC) + (0,4 x E) and expressed on a scale of 1 to 20 values (or another scale). If the interview is not held, the final classification will correspond to the classification attributed to the candidate's merit.


Candidate's merit - MC (100%)

Mot) Motivation letter: the content of the motivation letter is considered, with a weighting of 10%.

Hab) Academic qualifications: reflects the adequacy of the academic area to the work plan and the final classification of the academic degree, according to a reference table, with a weighting of 30%.

CV) Curriculum vitae: reflects the scientific and professional path, with a weighting of 60%.


The final merit ranking of the candidate will be obtained by applying the following formula:

MC=(Mot*0,10) + (Hab*0,30) + (CV*0,60)


The jury reserves the right not to award the scholarship if none of the candidates meets all the requirements and corresponds to the profile sought.


The documents proving the possession of academic degrees and diplomas, or the respective recognition when they have been awarded by foreign higher education institutions, may be dispensed with during the application stage, being replaced by a declaration of honour the candidate, and this condition will only be verified during the scholarship contracting stage.
