Opportunities for PPGCAL students: internships abroad and complementary training in scientific writing

Student participation in scientific missions and study missions overseas; the Program Coordination does not spare efforts to encourage its students by providing travel awards and funding for missions overseas.

Participation in scientific meetings: through the allocation of PROAP/CAPES resources; students should be aware of the annual call for the simplified selection process. In general, resources cover partial travel expenses.

Study missions abroad: the main means of allowing study missions abroad (lasting 4 to 12 months) is through the CAPES/PDSE Program, quotas of the PPGCAL. Be aware of the annual call.

Training and qualification for our students and post-docs for written communication in English: The Program Coordination has invested financial resources for the payment of specialized training courses in writing scientific manuscripts in English.

Open calls to PPGCAL students.

Overseas partner institutions, with which the PPGCAL has consolidated cooperation, with the participation of its students.
