El grit es una variable importante para predecir indicadores de éxito en diversos contextos entre los que se encuentra el académico. Sin embargo, son escasos los instrumentos de medida de grit bien validados en apoyo a la investigación. El objetivo del presente estudio es consolidar la validación de la Escala Grit de Oviedo (EGO) presentando datos de su validación en Portugal. Se empleó una muestra de 285 participantes portugueses (Maños= 18.46; DTaños= 1.30). Además, se empleó una muestra de población española para analizar la invarianza de medida (330 participantes; Maños= 23.01 y DTaños= 3.22). Se confirmó la unidimensionalidad de la escala EGO en el contexto portugués, mostrando además invarianza escalar entre ambas poblaciones. La fiabilidad de la escala EGO fue excelente (ω= .96), y mostró una correlación moderada con el bienestar subjetivo (r= .28) y con la confianza para terminar el curso académico (r= .33). La escala EGO puede ser empleada para estudiar el grit en Portugal.
