Secondary Education Scholarship: is a revolution in Brazilian education on the way?

The Secondary Education Scholarship was presented as a light at the end of the tunnel for many students struggling to complete their studies. However, doubts arose about the financial viability of the program, generating a mix of hope and uncertainty among students and their families. After all, in a country with so many economic challenges, would it be possible to fund such an ambitious project?

The government’s response

Faced with uncertainties, the Minister of Planning, Simone Tebet, provided clarifications. According to her, there is no reason to worry: students who comply with the planned rules will receive the benefit on the planned dates. She reinforced the government’s commitment to meeting the education and health floors, and mentioned the Bolsa Permanência, an initiative that aims to financially support young people in high school.

When will the grant be paid?

The Minister of Education, Camilo Santana, projected that the first payment will take place in March 2024. This planning, however, depends on the collaboration of state governments, in partnership with Caixa Econômica Federal, for its effective execution.

Criteria for receiving the scholarship

Not all high school students will be entitled to the High School Scholarship. The program aims to serve students who meet certain requirements, such as active enrollment, minimum class attendance, passing the academic year, participation in educational exams and, for Youth and Adult Education (EJA) students aged between 19 and 24, the inclusion is also anticipated. The scholarship will be R$200 per month for 10 months per year, with a bonus of R$1,000 at the end of the course, conditional on completing the ENEM.
