Why Brazil? 

Studying in Brazil has many benefits! In addition to allowing students to learn (more) about the many incredible aspects of this great multicultural country, it allows students to apply for Fulbright scholarships. Melissa (Missy) Reif '13 and Benjamin (Ben) West '14 have won Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships! They both studied in Brazil.
