The Brazil Initiative of the International Division in collaboration with the Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program (LACIS) sponsors the Joaquim Nabuco Award, given annually to the two best essays on Brazil (any field) by a degree-seeking University of Wisconsin-Madison student. The essay may be written in English or Portuguese and should have at least 15 double-spaced pages. The competition is not open to previous Joaquim Nabuco Award winners. The prize, a lump-sum cash award of $2000, is given to one graduate and one undergraduate student each. The winners are strongly encouraged to use the award for a research trip to Brazil. Applicants must agree to present their paper in person during the Fall semester following the receipt of the award and must make every effort to be introduced by their faculty/thesis adviser.
The deadline for proposals is May 28, 2018. Please see the flyer for more details: Nabuco Awards 2018
