Within the scope of each PPG, the rules for the distribution of the amount that will be allocated to this item are decided. The PNPD bench fee resources may be used under this heading exclusively by the quota grantee (and at his/her discretion) and follow the same rules established herein. 


The resources granted via PROAP may be used in the following situations:

- participation in scientific-academic events (with or without paper presentation);

- field visits or activities related to data collection for project development;

- participation in courses and training in laboratory techniques and use of equipment;

- participation in exchange activities and partnerships between PPGs and formally associated institutions;

To request assistance via PROAP, the student must contact the secretary of the Graduate Program to which he is linked to check the internal rules and deadlines for the request. It is suggested that the information is sought reasonably in advance of the date of the event, since the aid cannot be paid after the event has started.

To request financial assistance to carry out data collection/field visit, a letter from the advisor with the justification for carrying out the activity must be attached to the form. 


Before requesting assistance, carefully read the guidelines on accountability.
