Mobile app lets users search for university scholarships

An application launched at the end of August aims to help users search for scholarship opportunities and discounts on private university courses in Brazil, reducing the number of unfilled spaces. The Quero Bolsa app allows users to search with detailed filters such as course type, level of education (undergraduate or graduate), institution, learning options (in-person, semi-distance, or distance), and the price that the user is willing to pay—starting from R$100 per month. With these filters, users can set the application to automatically notify them whenever new scholarships or discounts become available.

If a candidate is interested in a certain scholarship offer, the app itself provides details of the qualification rules for each educational institution and the prerequisites that must be followed to continue receiving the grant until the end of the course. Some scholarships are only offered to students already enrolled on the course, while some are only granted to new students. Quero Bolsa is free and available for download on all tablets and mobile devices running Android or iOS. The application searches scholarships with discounts that range from 5% to 75%, at more than 1,100 Brazilian educational institutions registered on the platform. It also provides a wide range of information on universities, courses, price comparisons, study tips, and careers advice.
