This Friday (6) is the deadline for those pre-selected for the Student Financing Fund (Fies) for the second half of 2021 to complete their registration.
The list of pre-selected candidates was released last Wednesday (4), in a single call. The result is available at Fies page.
According to the Ministry of Education (MEC), the selection ensures only the expectation of entitlement to the vacancy. The contracting of financing is subject to the other rules and procedures for formalizing the contract.
Students who were not pre-selected are automatically included in the waiting list, subject to classification. Considering that there is no new ranking, after the publication of the result of the single call, the waiting list participants must, obligatorily, accompany their eventual pre-selection.
In this case, candidates must complete their registration within three working days, counted from the day following the publication of their pre-selection in the system. The deadline for the waiting list is August 31st.
In 2021, Fies has an offer of 93 thousand vacancies. In this selection for the second semester, 69 thousand places are available, distributed in 23,320 courses from 1,324 private higher education institutions. If there are remaining vacancies, not occupied in the single call, the MEC may make a new selection.
To access the fund, it is necessary to have per capita gross monthly family income of up to three minimum wages and to have participated in one of the editions of the National Secondary Education Examination (Enem), starting in 2010, obtaining at least 450 points on the average of the five exam tests and not having cleared the writing test.
