This event aims to present funding opportunities for Brazilian students who wish to study at King’s College London. The talk explores the Líderes Estudar Programme and shares the first-hand experiences of Estudar Leaders in the UK.
The event will be held in Portuguese.
Líderes Estudar is a pioneer Brazilian scholarship programme from Fundação Estudar. This 30-year old programme has supported more than 725 Brazilian students with promising leadership potential. Each student awarded with an undergraduate or postgraduate scholarship also receives support from a large community of leaders to amplify positive changes in their areas.
During this event we will learn more about the programme and hear from two Líderes Estudar Scholarship holders based in the UK.
