Brazil-U.S. Exchange Program

The Sociedade Brasileira de Fisica (SBF) and the American Physics Society (APS) are pleased to announce the launch of a new exchange program for physics graduate students and professors in the U.S. and Brazil.

Through the Brazil- U.S. Physics student visitation program, graduate students in the U.S. and Brazil can apply for funds to travel to the other country in order to pursue a breadth of opportunities in physics. Such opportunities might include: 1) attending a short course seminar or summer institute; 2) visiting with a professor in his/her field of study; 3) working temporarily in a laboratory; or 4) any other opportunity that the student and professor believe is worthy of travel support. Grants for students are for up to $3,000.

The Brazil-U.S. Professorship/Lectureship Program funds physicists in Brazil and the United States wishing to visit overseas to teach a short course or deliver a lecture series in the other country. The professorship grants are for up to $4,000.
