FGV CPDOC launches online voluntary introductory scientific research programs
FGV CPDOC has just created two voluntary introductory scientific research programs for undergraduate and high school students across Brazil, starting this month.
The Voluntary Institutional Introductory Scientific Research Program (PIVIC) is aimed at undergraduate students in various areas of knowledge in Brazil and abroad. The Junior Voluntary Institutional Introductory Scientific Research Program (PIVIC Jr.) is designed for first to third-grade high school students, at Brazilian public and private sector schools.
The first year of the programs will take place completely online and participants can work on one of 15 projects listed in the public notice. When applying, they were asked to select up to three projects in order of preference.
In all, 97 people from all regions of Brazil applied to take part in these programs, including 64% from the state of Rio de Janeiro and 36% from other states (11 from Pernambuco, five from Sao Paulo, five from Minas Gerais, four from Paraná, two from the Federal District and one from each of the following states: Amapá, Bahia, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte and Santa Catarina).
Thirty people (31% of candidates) were selected to participate in the program for undergraduate students (79% from Brazil’s Southeast region, 10% from the South, 8% from the Northeast and 3% from the North). Another three candidates, all from Rio de Janeiro, were selected to take part in the program for high school students.
The programs aim to contribute to the scientific training and research skills of Brazilian students while promoting the country’s socioeconomic development, in line with Fundação Getulio Vargas’ institutional mission. The students will be integrated into interdisciplinary activities at FGV CPDOC’s research labs and other units. Their work plans will involve undergraduate research in the social sciences, graduate research in history, politics and cultural assets, FGV CPDOC’s Audiovisual and Documentary Center and its Archive Center.
