Institutional Support

FGV EPGE receives institutional support from public research agencies and also from the private sector. This support takes the form of funding for research and scholarships for enrolled students.

The following institutions and companies contribute to the school:

National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq)
The Ministry for Science, Technology and Information’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) has the mission of promoting science, technology and innovation and formulating policies to contribute to help expand the frontiers of knowledge, sustainable development and national sovereignty.


Rio de Janeiro State Research Foundation (FAPERJ)
The Rio de Janeiro State Research Foundation (FAPERJ) reports to the state government’s Science and Technology Secretariat. It is responsible for executing the state government’s science, technology and innovation policy. Its mission is to contribute to the establishment of favorable conditions for Brazilian social development by stimulating activities in the scientific and technological areas and supporting projects and programs run by academic and research institutions based in the state of Rio de Janeiro.


National Science and Technology Institute (INCT)
The institute’s mission is to use economics in order to tackle the shortage of educated human capital in Brazil efficiently, without wasting scarce public resources. Enhancing human capital in Brazil will lead to greater economic development and greater social inclusion of vulnerable people. 

Under EPGE’s coordination, the resources for this project are also channeled to Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP) and Ceará Federal University’s Center for Graduate Studies in Economics.


Academic Excellence Program (PROEX)
The current agreement between FGV EPGE and the Education Ministry’s Academic Excellence Program (PROEX) began in 2008. PROEX’s funding helps pay for master’s and doctoral scholarships, the development of theses and dissertations, and international exchange programs for students and professors.

With PROEX’s support, FGV EPGE frequently receives visits from professors from prominent education institutions in other countries as part of efforts to boost the school’s international activities. PROEX also helps pay for students’ airfares and lodging when they attend conferences and seminars in Brazil and abroad.


Banco BBM
Banco BBM is part of Brazil’s oldest private sector financial group, which was founded in 1858. It invests in excellent professional training by supporting academic projects through scholarships for graduate students.
