The Federal University of Pelotas was one of the 25 Brazilian universities awarded by Capes Call “Institutional Projects for Internationalization” (PrInt). Designed to develop and implement the internationalization of the areas of knowledge chosen by the selected institutions, PrInt seeks to stimulate the formation of international research networks. The University will receive a funding of R$ 16 million to be used in four years, so as to promote internationalization actions in its graduate programs. Changes were also announced in the Doctoral Sandwich Program Abroad (PDSE), in which overseas sandwich doctorate scholarships will no longer be offered per program, but by the university awarded by PrInt. These changes should reflect an improvement in the quality of research and graduate studies at UFPel.
