The IFGW graduate program holds selection processes for admission in Master's and Ph.D. courses twice a year. The Master fellowship have the duration of 24 months and the PhD fellowship have the duration of 48 months. The accepted candidates may receive scholarship from the program depending on their classification on the selection process. In Brazil you can apply for the PhD program without a previous Master degree, but also you can apply after finishing the Master program.
The potential advisor and the candidate could also apply for a scholarship from the funding agency FAPESP, that it’s the more prestigious fellowship in Brazil. The FAPESP scholarship application may be submitted even before acceptance in our program since proof of registration is required only in the latter stage of the fellowship installation.
