CyberBRICS: program offers scholarships for research on internet access and public administration digitalization

The FGV´s Rio de Janeiro Law School is launching a selection process for the second edition of its scholarship program for the CyberBRICS project. This initiative is part of the school’s Fellows in Rio program, which offers five scholarships for up to six months, providing financial, intellectual and networking resources to support selected researchers who live in the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) or have relevant experience in at least one of them. Interested researchers have until November 10 to apply.

The aim of the program is to support a select group of highly qualified researchers at graduate, doctorate and post-doctorate level who are working in areas related to the CyberBRICS project’s 2020-2021 work plan activities. The focus in this period will be on internet access regulation and public administration digitalization in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

The scholarships will be awarded by a committee composed of professors at partner institutions. In addition to FGV, the program is made up of the Higher School of Economics and Center for New Media and Society in Moscow, Russia; the Center for Internet and Society in New Delhi, India; the University of Fudan in Shanghai, China; the University of Hong Kong, China; and Research ICT Africa and the University of Cape Town in Cape Town, South Africa.
