Ciência sem Fronteiras Programas de Pós-graduação
Postgraduate Opportunities at IT Sligo for students from Brazil
Science without Borders is a large scale scholarship program primarily funded by the Brazilian federal government. The program seeks to strengthen and expand the initiatives of science and technology, innovation and competitiveness through international mobility of undergraduate and graduate students and researchers.
The program is a joint effort of the Ministry of Education (MEC) and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MCT) through their respective funding agencies – CAPES and CNPq.
The Institutes of Technology will provide opportunities at both undergraduate and postgraduate level under the scheme. Undergraduate students from Brazil can come to Ireland for up to one year of study at Institutes of Technology. Students in the program will return to Brazil to complete their degrees. For further information on undergraduate opportunities please contact the IT Sligo International Office.
Opportunities are also available at both PhD and Postdoctoral level and all are linked to our Research Centre. Please find below details on our postgraduate opportunities.
