Fellows in Rio is the annual fellowship program of FGV Direito Rio. The goal of the program is to support a select group of highly qualified doctoral and post-doctoral scholars working in areas related to the School’s research centers. It seeks to offer economic and intellectual resources to support insightful and promising young legal scholars.
The fellows participate in projects at the school’s research centers, along with developing their own research. They receive a six-month scholarship, in the amount of R$ 36,000.00 for doctoral students and R$ 45,000.00 for doctors. They will also have the opportunity to give short courses to students, and participate in workshops with researchers and professors.
In the three previous editions, FGV Direito Rio received 368 applications from 53 different nationalities.
