IIE is pleased to announce the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP)
is expanding to include Master’s Degrees in Applied Sciences. The Mestrado Profissional - EUA (Master’s Degree in Applied Sciences) Program is part of the Brazilian government's larger initiative to grant 100,000 scholarships for the best students to study at the world's best universities.
The graduate component, designed and sponsored by CAPES and CNPq, will be administered by IIE and offer students from Brazil the opportunity to pursue terminal master’s degrees in applied technology and science fields, especially those advancing innovation and creativity. Students will enroll in applied technology and science programs to gain knowledge in and experience with cutting-edge and innovative technologies and approaches as well to build pathways into technical and science-based careers. The grant allows for up to two years of study in colleges and universities in the United States. Students are required to complete an internship, preferably during the summer months of their degree programs, and to produce a thesis or engage in a capstone experience.
Students will be selected in February 2014; IIE will submit applications on their behalf to U.S. master’s degree programs for fall 2014 admission. They are expected to complete by June 2016. If your institution is interested in receiving applications, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
. BSMP aims to identify institutions, centers, organizations, and leaders with whom sustainable linkages and cooperative exchanges can be established.
