Lemann Fellows with Jorge Paulo Lemann
The Lemann Fellowships were established in 2006 to give Brazilians who work or aspire to work as professionals in education, government, or public health the opportunity for advanced study at Harvard University so as to help build a stronger, more effective public sector in Brazil. Fellowships support graduate students who are Brazilian citizens at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), or the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Fellowships are awarded via the Committee on General Scholarships (CGS) through a competitive process after admission to the University. They also support dissertation research for doctoral students of any nationality at Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) whose work focuses significantly on Brazil. The Fellowships are made possible by the generosity of Jorge Paulo Lemann and the Lemann family.
