International students (with income abroad) are required to apply online, print the receipt available in their area, and send it following the instructions provided by the admission call, attaching a document certifying the family’s economic status and a copy of an official identification document. This is to be eligible for the services offered by the DSU (Scholarship, Services Scholarship, Grant for Disabled Students, Extraordinary Contribution, Subsidized Canteen Prices, etc.).
