Applications are invited from researchers across disciplines proposing research projects relating to Brazil. Proposed projects must meet at least one of the following three criteria:
Include collaboration with Brazilian academics
Be undertaken in Brazil in whole or in part
Focus on Brazil
Applicants may request up to $150,000 payable over on or two years, as specified by the applicant in his or her proposal. Grants are non-renewable, but there are no limits on the number of times an individual may apply for funding. It is anticipated that 5-10 grants will be awarded each year.

Applicants should note that any benefits-eligible personnel expenses in the budget must include the appropriate fringe rates for each year of funding. If the application proposed is to fund a certain amount of an existing employee's time, then the budget must also include that percentage of the applied fringe. Applicants should consult with Human Resources at the school where they hold their primary affiliation for applicable rates.
Include direct costs only. School assessments should not be included in your budget (these will be arranged separately with the schools)
Applications are invited from individuals who hold a faculty appointment at a Harvard school and who have principal investigator rights at that school. Harvard Medical School faculty must hold a faculty appointment with PI rights in one HMS's basic or social science departments. Faculty may request support for postdoctoral scholars and graduate students from Brazil; and for Harvard postdocs, graduate students and undergraduates.
Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of academic merit, feasibility, and advancement of the objectives of the fund.
