Lemann Brazil Research Fund

The Lemann Brazil Research Fund is made possible by a generous gift from the Lemann Foundation and is administered by the Office of the Provost. It supports Brazil-related research in all areas related to education, as well as research in any other disciplinary area undertaken in collaboration with a Brazilian colleague. Harvard faculty with principal investigator rights at any Harvard school are eligible to apply for an award.
