In the form of a sandwich doctorate abroad, students regularly enrolled in doctoral courses in Brazil undertake part of the course in an institution abroad, returning and remaining in Brazil for finishing mandatory credits and thesis defense. In order to apply for the scholarship, the candidate must be in line with one of the Unisinos priority themes (it is suggested reading Unisinos internationalization plan, themes and research projects), be regularly enrolled in one of the participating Graduate Programs and wish to pursue his or her PhD internship in one of the countries that are part of the project.
The selection calls will be published on this page and will meet the CAPES criteria and also the internal regulations of each Graduate Program. It is important to pay attention to the foreign language proficiency requirements established by CAPES.
The scholarship payment will be made directly by CAPES to the scholarship holder and will not include full payment of tuition and fees or bench fees to foreign partner institutions.
It is necessary for Unisinos to have a cooperation agreement, memorandum of understanding, agreement or legal instrument with the university of destination.
If Unisinos does not have an agreement with the foreign institution, it is possible to ask the Program Coordination to evaluate the possibility of a new partnership.
