THE BRAZIL SCIENTIFIC MOBILITY UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN THE UNITED STATES

Introduction
In July 2011, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff announced the creation of a new scholarship program known as Ciência sem Fronteiras, a multiyear initiative to send 75,000 fullyfunded Brazilian students abroad for training in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, with an additional 25,000 scholarships expected to be funded by the private sector. This initiative is coordinated jointly by the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Ministry of Education’s FederalAgency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES). The program was created to promote scientific research, invest and fund educational resources within Brazil and outside of the country, increase international cooperation in science and technology, and initiate and engage students in a global dialogue through international education. Scholarships are awarded for study in more than12 countries including: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The United States currently hosts the largest number of students, followed by France, Portugal, and Spain (see Figure 1). Figure 1: Number of Ciência sem Fronteiras Scholarship Awarded
