|Education Trade Mission to Brazil -- Education/Training Services|
The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (US&FCS), is organizing an education mission to Brazil (Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo) and is partnering with the United States Department of State's EducationUSA Advising Centers. The emphasis will be on U.S. higher education, focusing on, in order of importance, intensive English language programs, undergraduate and graduate programs, and community college programs. English language programs and other continuing education programs seeking to participate should be part of a U.S. college or university and accredited through them. Community colleges, undergraduate and graduate programs seeking to participate should be accredited by a recognized accreditation body listed in Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), in the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA), or any accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. After an institution has been selected to participate on the mission, a payment to the South America EducationUSA fair in the form of a participation fee is required. The participation fee is $3,750 dollars for one principal representative from each regionally accredited educational institution per city until May 31st and $4,110 dollars for applications received after this date. The fee for each additional representative is $300.
