The Canadian Bureau for International Education announced Tuesday the launch of Brazil's Science without Borders Program for Canada-bound undergraduate students. Science without Borders will offer 101,000 scholarships to Brazilians to study, intern, and conduct research in selected nations over a 4-year period. The Canadian program will initially focus on undergraduates who will study or intern for up to 12 months in Canada, with a possible 2 additional months of language study. Students will return to Brazil to finish their degree programs. Working in collaboration with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and Languages Canada, CBIE has an agreement with Brazil's 2 major granting agencies to support the implementation of the Canadian component of this initiative.
