SDI Intelligrated to host students from Brazil for summer internships

Internships are part of Brazilian government’s Scientific Mobility Program.

By ·

SDI Intelligrated, a joint venture in São Paulo, Brazil between Intelligrated and SDI Group USA, has announced that it will host three interns from Brazil in the U.S. this summer as part of a scholarship program sponsored by the Brazilian government for the country’s top students. The interns will be hosted in St. Louis and gain experience in engineering.

The students are among approximately 1,500 Brazilian undergraduate students studying in the United States this year through the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program. The government program aims to promote innovation and strengthen science and technology skills in Brazil. Students spend a year in the U.S. studying at universities and working as interns before returning to Brazil to complete their degrees. Scholarship recipients are primarily students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

SDI Intelligrated is hosting these students as interns to help them gain practical experience in their fields, and with a long-term goal of building relationships with students, universities and future leaders in Brazil after the students return to their home country.

“We are pleased to offer these students internship experiences in the U.S. and are interested to see how they apply their experience when they return home,” said Martin Clark, senior director, international operations, Intelligrated.

The Brazil Scientific Mobility undergraduate scholarships program, administered by the Institute of International Education, is part of the Brazilian government’s initiative to grant 126,000 scholarships for the best students from Brazil to study abroad at the world’s best universities, with 100,000 scholarships funded by the government of Brazil, and 26,000 funded privately. The program is sponsored by the scholarship foundation of Brazil’s Ministry of Education, Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES). The Institute of International Education has been working closely with CAPES and with colleges, universities and corporations across the United States, including SDI Intelligrated, to place the students in U.S. study programs and internships that best meet their needs.

“We are pleased to partner with the Government of Brazil and with the U.S. companies and campuses to implement this important program,” said IIE’s president and CEO Allan E. Goodman. “At a time when Brazil’s economy is expanding rapidly, and Brazil and the U.S. are forging unprecedented ties in trade, energy and scientific development, we look to higher education as another area where our two countries should seek much stronger cooperation.”
