Emory now has over 25 faculty working on issues relating to Brazil—with particular strength in Brazilian history—and offers Portuguese language instruction. This expansion of faculty interest is a relatively recent phenomenon that takes into account the Brazilian government's significant investment in education through programs like Science without Borders and other grant-based funding sources. Brazil is home to over 50 million children under the age of 14 but only has the capacity to enroll 16.5 percent of them in Brazilian higher education institutions.

If you are planning a global project in Brazil, please start by reading through Global Services' brief on planning a global project and contact Christine Rapalje, director of global services, with any country-specific questions.
