A generous gift from the Jorge Paulo Lemann Foundation has created a pilot program to support Lemann Education Fellowships at MIT. For the 2015-2016 year, three 9-month fellowships will be awarded to outstanding MIT graduate students to further their studies in education, educational technology and innovation, educational policy and reform, and related areas. The value of the fellowship is $60,000. Graduate students from all schools and disciplines are eligible but preference will be given to applicants from Brazil, and then to applicants from any country working on issues relevant to advancing education in Brazil. Preference will also be given to masters students, then to doctoral students. Incoming students must first apply and be admitted to their program of choice at MIT. Once admitted at MIT, students then directly submit a further application for a Lemann Fellowship. Applications for incoming masters students and advanced masters and doctoral students currently enrolled at MIT are both due by April 1st by email to Rosabelli Coelho-Keyssar Program Manager of MIT Brazil.
