Caixa Geral de Depósitos Award

This is a recognition of the best finalist students of initial training courses at the University of Algarve


Six annual awards are given to the best finalist student in each teaching area, covering all UAlg undergraduate and integrated master courses:

  • Arts and Education
  • Health Sciences
  • Life Sciences
  • Human and Social Sciences
  • Engineering and Informatics
  • Management and Economics

The Prize will be awarded to students who obtained the best final average of the course in the immediately preceding academic year, never lower than 14 values. The selection of candidates will take into account, when necessary, the decimal values of the respective averages. In the event of a tie, prizes will be awarded ex aequo.

If, in a given area of education, no student fulfills the established requirements, the amount of that prize will revert to the best non-awarded student in the rest of the teaching areas.


Each Prize will have the value of 1,000 Euros or the corresponding to 100% of the Master's / MBA fees to attend at the University of Algarve, with a limit of 2,000 Euros, as well as access to training credit with a fee corresponding to Euribor at 3 months + 0.75%


The Academic Services are responsible for informing which students meet the above conditions.

Prize Awarding

The prize will be presented in December, of each calendar year, at the public University Day ceremony.
