Embry-Riddle hosts Brazilian students in Science Without Borders program
The Daily Courier

Three Brazilian students are attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Prescott campus through the new Science Without Borders program established by the Brazilian government to encourage education and research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The undergraduate scholarship program is part of the Brazilian government's larger initiative to grant 100,000 scholarships to the best students from Brazil, allowing them to study abroad at the world's top universities for a year and serve a summer internship before returning to Brazil to complete their degrees.

Eduardo Rodrigues Silva Filho, 20, from Imperatriz, Brazil; Leandro Jose Rocha Da Costa, 20, from Belo Horizonte, Brazil; and Maria Augusta Do Rego Barros Fernandez, 19, from Recife, Brazil, will be studying at the Prescott campus.

"At a time when Brazil's economy is expanding rapidly, and Brazil and the United States are forging unprecedented ties in trade, energy and scientific development, we look to higher education as another area where our two countries should seek much stronger cooperation," said Allan E. Goodman, president and CEO of the Institute of International Education, which administers the program.

The Study Abroad and International Admissions office at Embry-Riddle encourages students to take advantage of the opportunity for international education, choosing from more than 50 cities on five continents to enhance their academic, professional, and personal lives.
