The Graded Scholar Program

Graded is dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through our Graded Scholar Program, Graded offers life-changing, full-tuition scholarships to economically disadvantaged, exceptionally gifted Brazilian students. Donors may choose to finance a scholarship with an endowment fund or commit to sponsoring a scholar on an annual basis until graduation.

Graded Scholar Endowment - A total of R$3.4 million is needed to support a scholar in perpetuity. 

Sponsor-A-Scholar - The annual cost for funding a scholarship recipient is R$200,000.00.
