Award Activity

The grant supports independent or collaborative research at Brazilian universities, research institutes and, in special cases, NGOs. The strategic goal of the U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program in Brazil is to support the internationalization process of the Brazilian higher education system.  In this way, it is expected that scholars work not only on their individual research projects, but also develop activities that foster the mobility of students and peers, and other collaborative initiatives. Candidates with no or little academic experience in Brazil are encouraged to apply.
