Brazil Scientific Mobility Program

About the Program

The Brazil Scientific Mobility Program is a scholarship program primarily funded by the Brazilian government. The program is a joint effort of the Ministry of Education (MEC) and the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI) through their respective funding agencies – the Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES) and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq).

Through this program, the Brazilian government seeks to strengthen and expand the initiatives of science and technology, innovation and competitiveness through the international mobility of undergraduate and graduate students and researchers.


Arizona State University welcomes Brazilian undergraduate students participating in the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program. The one-year non-degree program allows students to learn from some of the most renowned faculty in the world in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. 

Ranked a top university in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities, ASU is committed to excellence and is considered a top choice for international students. Here, students can participate in research as early as their freshman year, choose from more than 1,000 student clubs and organizations to get involved, and participate in community outreach activities while receiving guidance and support every step of the way.
