About the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program:
In July 2011, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff announced the creation of a new scholarship program known as Ciência sem Fronteiras, a multiyear initiative to send 75,000 fully funded Brazilian students abroad for training in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, with an additional 25,000 scholarships expected to be funded by the private sector. This initiative is coordinated jointly by the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Ministry of Education’s Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES).
The program was created to promote scientific research, invest in and fund educational resources within Brazil and outside of the country, increase international cooperation in science and technology, and engage students in a global dialogue through international education. Scholarships are awarded for study in 30 countries. The United States currently hosts the largest number of students, followed by France, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

IIE’s President Allan E. Goodman and international careers expert Stacie Nevadomski Berdan, co-authors of A Student Guide to Study Abroad, recently weighed in on the debate surrounding study abroad for the New York Times "Room for Debate: A Year Abroad vs. A Year Wasted."

"Despite the inevitable increasing global competition for jobs, American graduates lack the international experience, language capabilities, and cross-cultural communication skills necessary to succeed in the global economy. With only about 10 percent of students studying abroad at some point in their academic career, we have a long way to go."
