The Institutional Project of Internationalization (PUCRS-PrInt) has been renewed and new calls are open for student and faculty mobility, until Mar 7, 2022. Selected applicants will begin their activities abroad or at PUCRS in June, July and August 2022, exclusively.
Since its beginning, PUCRS-PrInt has awarded more than 200 grants for faculty and PhD students to go abroad, and has received professors and researchers from other countries to develop activities at PUCRS.

We expect engagement from the academic community in this movement of internationalization of the University”, he comments.
