The Jorge Paulo Lemann Fellowships support graduate students who are residents and citizens of Brazil who are committed to becoming leaders in their field and making a difference in Brazil in a career dedicated to creating social impact in the country. Applicants must planning to enroll in full-time degree programs at one of Harvard's graduate and professional schools, with a preference for, but not limited to, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, or the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. The fellowships are made possible by the generosity of Jorge Paulo Lemann.
Fellowship recipients must be enrolling in full-time, in-residence degree programs which run during the regular academic year. Students in part-time, summer, or on-line programs are not eligible for consideration.
Fellowships are awarded for the duration of a single degree program, generally up to two years. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of merit and financial need. Candidates should apply for consideration before entering the U.S. and prior to the start of their Harvard programs. Candidates must apply to and be accepted to an academic program at the university independently from this fellowship application. Admission to the University does not guarantee a fellowship award. Recipients are expected to return to Brazil to contribute to the country following the completion of their degree program.
The online application requires the following materials:
• Application form.
• Resume or Curriculum Vitae.
• Statement of Purpose.
