Emory hosts a senior Brazilian scholar for one semester each academic year in collaboration with theBrazilian Fulbright Commission. These scholars teach a seminar, engage with Emory faculty and students, and contribute to university-wide momentum around Portuguese and Brazil-related studies. 

This program strengthens cooperation between Brazilian institutions and Emory across a wide range of disciplines ranging from the humanities and social sciences to public health and biomedicine. The Fulbright Brasil Distinguished Chair at Emory University will receive a maintenance stipend and funds to cover airfare and housing for one academic term to support research and teaching activities at Emory. The research produced through this cooperation will be incorporated into the teaching programs of Emory and the visiting professor’s home institution. In recent years, Emory has welcomed to campus Fulbright Brasil Distinguished Chairs, Benito Schmidt (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, history, Spring 2018), Ruben Oliven (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, anthropology, Fall 2018), and Dária Jaremtchuk (University of Sao Paulo, art history, Spring 2019).
