The GPEFM has so far been successful in channelling funds to all students in the PhD and almost all in the MRes. Decisions on financial aid are an integral part of the admission process. It is not possible to grant tuition exemptions after the beginning of the academic year. Funding may include:
- Full or partial tuition grants
- A number of teaching assistantships, which are offered to students with knowledge of the languages used in the undergraduate University courses: Catalan, Spanish and English.
- A number of research assistantships connected with research being done at the Department.
The UPF Department of Economics and Business assigns grants to members of its PhD Programme who present papers in International conferences and symposiums and who spend short stays abroad to do research.
The aim of this grant is to finance, partially or totally, travel expenses derived from paper presentations in conferences or shorts stays abroad to those students who have no other funds to finance them.
This grant covers up to the following amounts:

Rest of Europe.
500 € (maximum)

DEE Research Budget
PhD Students have a yearly budget of 500€ to cover research expenses. This ammount is granted for presentations in conferences, and requires the approval of the PhD Direction for any other purpose.
Sudents should be aware that the possession of external financial aid is looked at very favourably by the Admissions Committee. It should also be understood that most forms of financial aid offered by the programme are not compatible with any other scholarships or grants. Moreover, admittted students are encouraged to continue to seek external sources of aid.
