Frequently Asked Questions

I am not PhD student/post doc anymore; may I apply to attend the school?

Yes, you can be exceptionally accepted to participate. However, in this case you will not be eligible to receive any financial support from Fapesp.

I am a student/post doc; if my application is accepted what should I expect as support?

If you are accepted to participate in the school and you are not from the city of São Paulo, you will have your travel expenses paid (air-ticket or bus ticket) and you receive a daily allowance of 240 BRL for up to 10 days. The school will also pay for health insurance for non brazilians.

May I participate in just some days of the school?

No, participation during the 10 days is highly recommended.

Is it difficult to be accepted?

We are taking applications from all around the world and are advertising the school in several different media; at the same time, we will be able to accept a reasonably big number of students. Therefore, there is no clear answer to this question, but please notice that if you do not apply your chances of being accepted are none.

Will the School pay for Visa expenses?

Unfortunately, no, but we may provide invitation letters for justification.

Submitted documents have to be written in English?

For Brazilian students, Portuguese is ok.
