"The doctoral program in Administrative Sciences has been demanding, but very stimulating at the intellectual level. It has been gratifying the encouragement received from the Professors, the help of my peers and, of course ,the constant support of the CICP. As a FCT fellow I have to thank CICP for all the help provided during the process of contracting the scholarship and, more recently, the possibility of contact with so many excellent researchers in this area of knowledge, through our PhD thematic seminars. It is in fact, with motivation, enthusiasm and institutional support that I am on the path to a future research career."
