Apply to the MIT-Brazil Program


MIT-Brazil aspires to create opportunities for faculty and students to learn together from and foster Brazil’s innovation environment.

As its national anthem says, Brazil is giant by nature. It is the 5th largest country in the world (by area and population) and is among the top 10 economies.
Its well-developed agricultural sector makes Brazil one of the food baskets of the world (2nd largest food exporter). The country has vast natural resources with 60% of the Amazon forest is inside its limits (1 in 10 known species in the world lives in the Amazon rainforest); 20% of world’s water supply; an exceptionally balanced energy matrix as 79.8% of the power comes from Hydroelectric plants and other renewable sources (vs. the US = 73.5% electricity from fossil fuels)...and is the most fun!

Students should complete the 'Pre-Interview Questionnaire' within the MIT-Brazil application before making an appointment.
