The Institute of International Education released a report on Monday on the first year of the Brazil government’s Science Without Borders scholarship program. The 1,954 Brazilian undergraduate students who have come to the United States so far have studied at 238 host institutions. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) are enrolled in engineering or computer science courses.
The program has sparked unprecedented interest in collaborations with Brazilian universities. More than 2,500 scholarship recipients are expected to come to the U.S. every year for the next five years.
