U-Dream offers up to $2,000 for the spring or fall semesters (2014) to open educational opportunities for undocumented Utah students, or students adversely impacted by current educational and immigration policies, who exhibit educational excellence, commitment to social justice, and are actively engaged in their community. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible.
Offered by the The Brazilian Studies Association (BRASA), this scholarship targets aspiring Brazilianists with relatively little or no experience in Brazil. It seeks to contribute to the student’s initial trip (for a period from six weeks to three months), to heighten the student’s interest in Brazil, and deepen his/her commitment to Brazilian studies in the United States. Students are encouraged to combine this scholarship with other grants or awards.
