Harvard alumni living throughout Brazil play an important role in advancing the University's engagement with the country. Alumni support members of the Harvard community in numerous ways, such as connecting faculty with worthwhile endeavors in Brazil, providing advice, creating internship opportunities for students and serving as mentors. Alumni can also serve a resource for prospective students or visiting researchers who are eager to learn more about the Harvard experience. 

Harvard alumni interested in engaging with the DRCLAS Brazil Office should contact Tim Linden at

While DRCLAS often collaborates with alumni and their networks in Brazil, the organization of Harvard alumni in the country is directed by the local Alumni Clubs and by the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA).
