Post-Graduation Fellowship

DESCRIPTION

The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies Post-Graduation Fellowship in Brazil provides a one-year professional exchange experience through a position with Harvard University’s Office in São Paulo.

Established in 2006, the Brazil Office expands research, teaching and learning opportunities for Harvard faculty and students across the University. Our approach is collaborative in nature, seeking to connect leading thinkers at Harvard with their counterparts in Brazil. Ongoing programs and initiatives focus on cities, inequality, child development, education, environment, public health, mentoring and language acquisition.

The Post-Graduation Fellow will have the opportunity to immerse his or herself in Brazil’s largest city and cultural hub; gain a deeper understanding of some of the most pressing contemporary challenges facing Brazilian society; contribute to research, programs and events that aim to address such challenges; and leverage ties with Harvard to help the University build a vibrant intellectual network in Brazil.

Opportunities for involvement in projects take into account the interests and background of the Fellow as well as the needs of the Office.
