Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nivel Superior (CAPES) is a government agency founded in 1951 which works in collaboration with the Brazilian Ministry of Education in order to promote high standards for higher education in Brazil and develop national policies related to post-graduate study. 

The Brazil Institute at King's College London works closely with CAPES and is one of our main partners in Brazil.

As a result of the funding we receive from CAPES, the Institute is enabled to be one of five British univerisites to host the Rio Branco Chair in International Relations, as well as, receive numerous Visiting Researchers, PhD's, and Post Docs.

CAPES also fully funds three full time PhD students in the Brazil Institute.
