Scholarships for Cape Verdean students – Brazil

Brazil’s Ministry of Education has just awarded 141 scholarships for Cape Verdean students, who will receive a monthly 545-real stipend to study in the South American country. The scholarships are financed by the Milton Santos Higher Education Access Project, which this year benefited students from 24 countries in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

A total of 518 foreign students attending Brazilian federal higher learning institutes were granted scholarships through the program. The financial aid has a duration of 132 months, but may be renewed at the end of each academic year.

Guinea Bissau appears in first place in terms of the number of students selected, with 216, followed by Cape Verde (141) and the Congo (39).
