Graduate Scholarship Description
Ciência sem Fronteiras (CsF) is a large-scale nationwide scholarship program primarily funded by the Brazilian federal government with support from the private sector.
The main goal of the initiative is to promote the consolidation and expansion of science, technology and innovation in Brazil by means of international exchange and mobility. In placing both undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers from Brazil in international institutions of excellence around the world, and in inviting their counterparts to Brazil, the strategy aims to create a highly competitive and entrepreneurial environment.
With over 100,000 scholarships to be awarded between 2012 and 2016, the program is a joint initiative of Brazil’s Ministry of Education (MEC) and the Ministry of Science,Technology and Innovation (MCTI) through their respective funding agencies – CAPES (the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education) and CNPq (the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development), representing an investment of close to $2 billion over the four year period.
The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) in collaboration with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Languages Canada has an agreement with CAPES and CNPq to administer the majority of the Canadian Ciência sem Fronteiras scholarships. Dedicated CsF staff at CBIE are managing these scholarships.
Their services include the Canadian application process, student placement, and orientation sessions. CBIE will also be responsible for the payment of tuition fees to Canadian institutions on behalf of CAPES and/or CNPq.
