Science Without Borders

Science Without Borders Banner

Science without Borders (SwB) is a scholarship and exchange program funded primarily by the Brazilian Government, which was launched in July 2011. Striving to enrich the interaction between Brazilian university students and other countries and cultures, the program anticipates sending 101,000 Brazilian university students to study internationally in the subject areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by 2015. The program is administered by Brazil's federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES) and the national Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq).

Intended mainly for Brazilian students and researchers, the SwB program entails one-year of study for students at the undergraduate level, PhD interns, full-time PhDs, postdoctoral and professional education awards, senior fellowships and visiting researchers/scholars throughout the globe. In order to facilitate the process of going abroad, the program covers return airfare, a monthly stipend for housing and living costs, health insurance, and in some cases a pre-negotiated tuition fee package.

Ranking as one of the top-ten comprehensive universities in Canada, Memorial offers SwB participants the opportunity to study and research in a versatile academic environment with outstanding resources, while being immersed in Newfoundland’s unique cultural landscape. Not only are our academics and locality one-of-a-kind, but, too, Memorial has one of the lowest tuition fee rates in all of Canada. No matter the discipline, Memorial is an ideal destination for students wanting to become part of a prosperous and welcoming community.
