Applications open for 2021 Lemann Brazil Research Fund

Education Information

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is pleased to announce the opening of applications to the Lemann Brazil Research Fund. Applications are due by Jan. 25, 2021 and must be submitted via the Harvard University Funding Portal.

Established in 2016 with a gift from the Lemann Foundation, the Fund is intended to foster collaboration between scholars and to support research projects focused on current issues facing Brazil. Proposals are sought for research projects that address education management and administration; social science and its applications; public administration and policy; technological advances in education; and evidence-based research. Consideration will also be given to projects that propose collaboration between Harvard faculty and Brazilian academics in the life sciences, physical sciences and engineering, and basic and applied sciences.

Given the challenges of this year, special consideration will be given to applicants in any field proposing work related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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: 1) include collaboration with Brazilian academics; 2) be undertaken in Brazil in whole or in part; 3) focus on Brazil. Proposals are evaluated on the basis of academic merit, feasibility, and their anticipated advancement of the objectives of the Fund. Applicants may request up to $150,000 payable over one or two years.
