With funding from the Office of Global Strategies and Programs, the Duke Brazil Initiative was able to fund 13 exchange grants to send faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates to Brazil this summer to start collaborative projects with reserachers from a variety of fields and universities. In the second year of the DBI, we hope to bring Brazilian counterparts back to Duke to work with our scholars and students, participate in classroom activities, and hopefully apply for larger research grants in the together in the near future.
