Anglo-Brazilian Society


The Anglo-Brazilian Society exists to promote close and friendly relations between Brazil and Great Britain, and to further in the United Kingdom a knowledge of Brazil, its people and culture.

 In order to help promote these objectives the Society has an annual scholarship award. The Anglo-Brazilian Society Award is worth £1,000 and is intended to be a contribution towards the cost of a working/research visit to Brazil of from two to three months. The award is restricted to post- or undergraduate students who have some knowledge of Brazil, and who should have at least a working knowledge of Portuguese.

 Selection of candidates is by means of an essay competition and an interview. The essay, written in English, should be of approximately 3,000 words, and should deal with an aspect of the history, geography, language, literature, economy or culture of Brazil. Two copies of the essay should be submitted to the Secretary of the Anglo-Brazilian Society, 32 Green Street, London, W1Y 3FD, no later than 1 February 1998. Along with the essay, candidates are asked to submit an outline programme of their visit to Brazil, and a covering letter introducing themselves. Short-listed candidates will be interviewed in London (fare paid), and a final selection will then be made.

 The successful candidate is expected to travel to Brazil and back within the year, and will sign a statement absolving the Society from any liability connected with the visit to Brazil. He or she is then expected to address a meeting of the Society with a talk on his or her trip, preferably illustrated, on return from Brazil.
