International Programming

The Office of International Programs will engage our international students and scholars, with our domestic students, to foster an environment of mutual understanding and engender global perspectives on important issues on our campus.

The Brazil Scientific Mobility Program

In July 2011, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff announced the creation of a new scholarship program known as Ciência sem Fronteiras, a multiyear initiative to send 75,000 fully funded Brazilian students abroad for training in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, with an additional 25,000 scholarships expected to be funded by the private sector. This initiative is coordinated jointly by the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Ministry of Education’s Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES).

The program was created to promote scientific research, invest in and fund educational resources within Brazil and outside of the country, increase international cooperation in science and technology, and engage students in a global dialogue through international education. Scholarships are awarded for study in 30 countries. The United States currently hosts the largest number of students, followed by France, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Stevens hosts approximately 30 undergraduate students annually. The program was expanded and now includes 35 degree seeking graduate students as well.

Other Sponsored Students

Stevens hosts other international students from sponsoring agencies and embassies, such as the Royal Thai embassy, SABIC, the Institute of International Education, and the Turkish Consulate.
