Opportunities for PPGCAL students: internships abroad and complementary training in scientific writing
Student participation in scientific missions and study missions overseas; the Program Coordination does not spare efforts to encourage its students by providing travel awards and funding for missions overseas.
Participation in scientific meetings: through the allocation of PROAP/CAPES resources; students should be aware of the annual call for the simplified selection process. In general, resources cover partial travel expenses.
Study missions abroad: the main means of allowing study missions abroad (lasting 4 to 12 months) is through the CAPES/PDSE Program, quotas of the PPGCAL. Be aware of the annual call.
Training and qualification for our students and post-docs for written communication in English: The Program Coordination has invested financial resources for the payment of specialized training courses in writing scientific manuscripts in English.
Open calls to PPGCAL students.
