Brazil Science without Borders Scholarship
Scholarship Deadline: Varies by Host School

Undergraduate students from Brazil who want to study in the United States now have the opportunity to do so while receiving financial aid. The Brazilian government has started an initiative to give 100,000 scholarships to some of the best students in Brazil so they can study abroad for one year. The Brazil Science without Borders program is part of this initiative and allows students to study in the US. Students studying in one of the following fields will be given preference to receive this scholarship: science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

To participate in this program students must be currently attending a college or university in Brazil and be nominated by that school, then approved by CAPES or CNPq. Candidates that apply through both CAPES and CNPq will be disqualified. Students that participate in Brazil Science without Borders must return to Brazil to complete their degree after their year of study in the US.

    Has any of you tried to convince an university to accept students for 1-year-non-graduate program in the US? I am doing my PhD at CMU and some of the awarded students in my undergraduate University want to use their scholarship at CMU, but it seems they usually don’t accept students for 1 year…
