The Prize is awarded annually to the three finalist students who present the highest classification in a master's course in each of the following areas:
- Economy, Management and Tourism
- Sciences and Technologies
- Social Sciences and Humanities
If in a given area of education no student meets the established requirements, the amount of this award goes to the best non-awarded student in the group of other areas of education.
The total value of the Prize is 3000 Euros, being shared equally by all.
It is the Academic Services' responsibility to select the winner of the prize, as well as to communicate the winner to BPI.
The prize is presented in mid-November of each calendar year at the public ceremony for the Excellence Scholarships.
