Four Brazilian universities have listed The Ohio State University as a partner for the new Brazilian government funding system, CAPES PrInt. CAPES is a foundation connected with the Ministry of Education in Brazil.

This $60-million-dollar, four-year program aims to promote the development of strategic internationalization plans as a means to improve the quality of Brazilian graduate courses and to draw greater international visibility to scientific research carried out in Brazil.

Opportunities include Brazilian graduate students interested in being visiting scholars abroad and graduate students wanting to be visiting scholars in Brazil, as well as Brazilian faculty nominating their foreign collaborators as visiting faculty in Brazil.

To help Ohio State faculty and graduate students interested in these Brazilian universities and share how CAPES PrInt could foster collaborations, the Brazil Gateway, with the support of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and the Global One Health initiative, hosted an online workshop series comprised of four separate webinars, one with each university.

In this feature series, the Brazil Gateway will be spotlighting new Brazilian students who will be attending Ohio State. We are sure they will do great things at Ohio State! Join us in welcoming these new Buckeyes!

My name is Marina Miquilini, and I graduated from the University of São Paulo with an agronomy engineering major and a minor in animal sciences. During the last semester of my undergraduate degree, I had the great opportunity to work with Ohio State College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences faculty Alejandro Relling and Marilia Chiavegato as a visiting scholar. After learning more about Chiavegato's research area, I realized that as a professional I could do more than increase animal productivity while reconciling this with a sustainable intensification of agricultural systems through practices that minimize environmental impacts. And so, I applied for the master's degree in animal science at Ohio State under the guidance of Chiavegato.
