Brazil Fellowships

Brazil Office Fellowship

The Brazil Office Fellowship provides a professional exchange experience through a position with Harvard University’s Office in São Paulo. Duration of the Fellowship can range between six months and one year.

NOTE: Due to travel restrictions and health considerations caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, this Fellowship is currently being offered as a fully REMOTE opportunity.

Established in 2006, the Brazil Office in São Paulo works in tandem with the Brazil Studies Program in Cambridge to expand research, teaching and educational opportunities for Harvard faculty and students across the University. Most programmatic activities are collaborative in nature, seeking to connect Harvard experts and learners with counterparts in Brazil. Ongoing programs and initiatives focus on inequality, democracy, public health, environment, cities, child development, education, mentoring and language acquisition.
