In addition to scholarships provided by the Institutional Program for Undergraduate Research Scholarships (Programa Institucional de Bolsas de Iniciação Científica – PIBIC), offered by national and regional research funding agencies, there are three types of scholarships offered by FGV:

  1. based on merit and granted to candidates approved in the selection processes ‒ these are personal and non-transferable under any circumstance, and their maintenance is conditioned to the student's academic performance and fulfillment of the criteria established by each course;
  2. a refundable scholarship granted in the form of school financing to students who demonstrate good academic performance and/or economic-financial need; and

The percentage to be granted to each student can reach up to 100% of the monthly fees for the current school semester and will be defined by the School’s Scholarship Committee.


FGV ECMI holds ongoing extension activities to encourage interaction between the School and the external community.

The activities organized include media content production and organization of different types of events, such as academic seminars and hackathons open to all. In addition, there is also a regular schedule of workshops, courses and mini-courses for professional training.


Areas of the extension project

FGV ECMI’s extension project focuses on three major topics dealing with different aspects of the intersection between Communication and Technology. With an emphasis on digital methods, innovation and digital democracy, the extension activities are focused on the following areas:


This area seeks to develop activities to encourage the use of programming and digital methodologies in the field of communication. The activities are focused both on a formative dimension with an academic approach and on a practical dimension with tools and frameworks.

The extension projects in this area are inspired and based on FGV ECMI’s Innovation Cube laboratory and work in line with research and partners involved with the Cube. The projects propose innovations related to digital games, mixed, virtual or augmented reality, and artificial intelligence, among other topics within the scope of the Cube.

The activities in this area focus on media literacy and developing an ability to identify and understand different types of media, based on a critical approach of messages and their production processes. This involves the analysis of text messages, memes, viral videos, social media, videogames, publicity and other publications in order to develop projects for fact-checking and digital content production.

Project Selection

The extension projects at FGV ECMI are chosen through annual selections, and the topics are in line with the School’s pedagogical project and with the faculty’s abilities and interests. Seeking the development of innovative initiatives, extension at FGV ECMI encourages partnerships and collaborations with other educational institutions, organizations of civil society and companies.
