Science without borders

The Science without borders programme is funded by the Brazilian government and its main goal is to promote the initiatives of science, technology and innovation in Brazil by means of international mobility of students and researchers. The Czech Republic joined the programme in 2014 and participated in its second phase in order to allow scholarship opportunities for Brazilian students in various fields at Czech universities. The initiative was supported by the Czech participation at the EDU EXPO students fairs in Brazil in 2015. These scholarships are currently not available.
