National Postdoctoral Program (PNPD)

The program is an institutional concession that finances postdoctoral internships in stricto sensu graduate programs recommended by the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES). The number of scholarships offered varies according to the criteria defined by CAPES, which can take into account the performance of the graduate programs in the four-year evaluation, the areas of strategic support, the region where the higher education institution in question is located, among others. The graduate programs considered are responsible for the selection and monitoring of scholars, as well as the definition of their objectives and activities. The PNPD/CAPES scholarship includes two distinct financial contributions: a monthly scholarship and the payment of annual funding resources. The monthly scholarship consists of a payment of R$ 4,100.00 directly to the scholarship recipient. The annual contribution of funding resources is intended to subsidize research activities of the fellow, as well as their participation in events such as congresses, meetings, and symposiums. The transfer of funding resources and the norms of and the rules for its use accompany the development program to which the graduate program is linked.

  1. Promote higher education studies. 
  2. Strengthen national research groups.
  3. Introduce new staff to Graduate Programs in higher-education and research institutions. 
  4. Promote the insertion of Brazilian and foreign researchers in post-doctorate internships, stimulating their integration with research projects developed by Graduate Programs in Brazil.
