Science Without Borders connects Brazilian students with research and Canadian winter
Published on February 22 2013
Nothing spells challenge like SWB.
Short for the Science Without Borders program, SWB has resulted in Brock University welcoming 39 students from Brazil who are here for one year to tackle a program of intensive English, academic studies and a short-term research internship.
The program’s goal is to consolidate and expand science, technology and innovation in Brazil by means of international exchange and mobility.
The Brazilians, including 25 who began classes in January, are here on full scholarships from their government and come from 29 different federal and state universities across their homeland. Their fields of study include biology, biotechnology, chemistry, child and youth studies, computer sciences, digital humanities, health sciences, physiotherapy, radio and television and more.
