As one of the inaugural schools selected to participate in Brazil’s Scientific Mobility Program, CU-Boulder was pleased to host Brazilian Ambassador to the United States Mauro Vieira, and his accompanying Secretary Cho Russo, on July 17. Ambassador Vieira and Secretary Russo visited with 15 Brazilian students who receive undergraduate scholarships in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) for one year of study and internships.
“The Scientific Mobility students were eager to convey their enthusiasm for the program and their hope that funding for the initiative will continue so that other Brazilian students will have the opportunity to study abroad,” said Anne K. Heinz, dean of Continuing Education, which administers the program in partnership with the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Arts and Sciences. “These are wonderfully talented students and we have been delighted to host them.”
Brazilian students taking engineering courses at CU-Boulder through the program include Maira Sabadin Batista, Guilherme Bispo, Manuela Brandao, Lucas De Brito, Joao Guilherme Cavalcanti, Christopher Goncalves, Tiago Lucas Gouveia, Bruno Prada, Pedro Henrique Cheruti Thome, Fabio Cabral de Oliveira, and Gean Paulo Superati.
