and the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universidade_Federal_do_Rio_Grande_do_Sul
This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students who have a 3.0 GPA, who possess the necessary proficiency in Portuguese, and whose course work relates to the theme of "Making One Nation Out of Many: Multiculturalism in the United States and Brazil." The FIPSE grants are $5000 for the semester and tuition is waived at the participating Brazilian universities.
You will need to submit a completed application form, two letters of reference, and required documentation in PDF form (a current university transcript, a two-page statement of interest, and a current photo).
The second phase of the application process consists of an interview conducted in Portuguese by a committee that will include the co-directors and a former student participant.
