Select three (3) study programs for master’s or doctoral degrees. Each one of those programs must be in different universities located in different regions in Brazil.

One of the main objectives of the OAS-GCUB scholarship program is to promote the internationalization and mobilization of students of the Americas to different Brazilian regions.  Therefore, the program is designed to favor the equitable distribution of students among participating Brazilian universities.  Additionally, applying to three different regions will increase the chances of receiving a scholarship offer from one of the selected institutions, as the number of scholarship openings per university is limited.
