Since its first edition in 2011, the OAS-GCUB Scholarship Program has awarded in total almost 1,000 scholarships for master’s and doctoral degrees in over 50 participating universities. Selected students come from 28 countries of the Americas. For this fifth edition of this program more than 700 scholarships will be offered.
Through these advanced educational opportunities, the OAS and the GCUB support the training, development and networking of high-level human resources that contribute to the progress of their countries and strengthen the bonds of cooperation with Brazil. This is made possible by promoting greater integration between Brazilian universities and Latin America and the Caribbean; thus promoting scientific and cultural exchange, internationalization and the mobilization of outstanding students from the Americas.
The master's and doctoral programs offered by Brazilian educational institutions cover various fields of study, research and the development of the next generation of advanced technology appropriate to the realities and needs of Latin America and the Caribbean. In this fifth edition, programs in the area of health, with emphasis on research for health, will be offered for the second time, thanks to the cooperation agreement signed between the OAS and the PAHO / WHO.
"Thanks to this unique experience, I gained important new insights into my area of study, I met amazing people, and I was exposed to customs and places that taught me to see the world from a new perspective. I was able to grow personally and professionally and to contribute to the growth of other students. I thank the OAS and the GCUB for this excellent opportunity that strengthens ties between our nations allowing us to build a better world together.”
