To achieve better results in Graduate and Post-Graduate Programs, candidates admitted to IMPA are encouraged to begin their study programs during the summer term. This is why IMPA gives these candidates preference when distributing scholarships for the summer months of January and February.


Scholarships for the Summer Program

IMPA offers a limited number of two-month scholarships for the summer term. Scholarship applications for this term should be sent to IMPA by November 10th.

Master’s and Doctoral Fellowships

Master’s and Doctoral Fellowships are awarded by CNPq and by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES) (Committee for the Betterment of Graduate Students). The fellowships are granted on a yearly basis, as of the first of March.

The institutions concerned require that candidates be first admitted to a program and establish a deadline for fellowship applications. Therefore candidates for graduate study fellowships should apply for admission at IMPA by November 10th.  Late applicants may be considered, depending on the case.
