The Canada-Brazil Science without Borders program was founded by the Brazilian government and will offer 101,000 scholarships to Brazilians to study, intern and conduct research in selected countries over a four-year period. CBIE is collaborating with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Languages Canada to advise and offer placement support to Brazilian students in Canadian educational programs and internships with private sector partners. The program’s main goal is to consolidate and expand science, technology and innovation in Brazil by means of international exchange and mobility.
At this time, Brock is very excited to have accepted 14 students to participate in the SWB program, and these students are scheduled to arrive in September 2012. They are fully-sponsored students who will spend 12 months at Brock University. During the fall term, they will enroll in ESL’s Level 5 program and in January, they will enroll in undergraduate courses in their areas of academic study. In May, the students will take part in the University Mentorship program, and participate in a research or lab-based internship for three to four months.
