Princeton Brazil Global Fellows Program

The Princeton Brazil Global Fellows program supports outstanding Princeton undergraduate and graduate students who seek to participate in international research and teaching exchanges between Princeton and the University of São Paulo (USP) in global health, health policy, and the anthropology of medicine and health. 

The Princeton Brazil Global Fellows program is part of a larger strategic partnership recently established between Princeton University and the University of São Paulo, and PBGF fellows will collaborate with students and faculty in USP’s Departments of Anthropology and Preventive Medicine and the School of Public Health. This initiative brings together faculty, undergraduate students, and graduate students from both institutions to participate in collaborative research and pedagogical initiatives.

Summer research projects, including junior and senior independent work, are a keystone of the Princeton Brazil Global Fellows program. Each student is required to develop an original research project in an area of their interest, in collaboration with Professor João Biehl and the Princeton Brazil Global Fellows support team, who will help arrange a faculty mentor for each student at USP. Expenses for the summer project will be fully covered by the Princeton Brazil Global Fellows Program.

Fellows will also have the opportunity to travel to Brazil during spring recess to meet with potential faculty mentors and to lay the foundations for their summer research project. Expenses for this exploratory visit will also be covered by the Princeton Brazil Global Fellows program.
