The Sara Carreira Association marks its 1st anniversary with the opening of applications for 22 “Sara Carreira Scholarships.”

1 May, 2022

The mission of the Sara Carreira Association, set up in May 2021 in memory of Sara Carreira, is to support children in need, by paying tribute to Sara’s generous spirit and continuing her dreams and her way of being with others.

Through the “Sara Carreira Scholarship”, the association aims to support children and young people with limited financial resources between the ages of 12 and 21 years old on the application date. They should also be residents of mainland Portugal or its islands and be enrolled in the Portuguese education system. The scholarship will help them to fulfil their dreams of going further, by supporting them in continuing their education.
The Sara Carreira Association will award 22 scholarships this year (which corresponds to the age Sara would currently be), tailored to the specific needs of each selected scholarship recipient, preceded by an application phase that started on 1 May and ends on 1 June 2022.

Applications can be made via the website:, and all information needed to apply for a “Sara Carreira Scholarship” can be found in the regulations and the list of documents available on the Association’s website. It is also possible to get in touch with questions regarding the application process at the e-mail address:

This is the second year a “Sara Carreira Scholarship” has been awarded. Scholarship holders will be informed of the results of their application when the grades for access to higher education are published. Recipients of a “Sara Carreira Scholarship” for 2022/2023 will be revealed on the TV programme “Sementes do Futuro”.
