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. 

Applications for the 2018/19 award cycle are closed as of January 22, 2019. Award decisions will be announced in early April. The 2019/20 funding cycle will open in November 2019. You may review the 2018/19 Request for Proposals for reference, although changes may be made ahead of the 2019/20 award cycle. Read about the 2018 awardees in a Gazette article here and about the 2016 and 2017 awardees in a Gazette article here.
