Grants for US Citizens
In partnership with the Brazilian government, Fulbright offers fellowships to recent graduates, master’s and doctoral candidates for up to one academic year. Opportunities are also available for early and mid-career scholars with significant publishing and teaching record. Preference will be given to candidates without substantial prior experience in Brazil, regardless of how advanced in their careers they may be. Portuguese language skills, or another Romance language, are desired, although not a requirement.
