Pro-Educate Brazil

Investment in the higher
education of teachers

The Volkswagen Foundation provides scholarships for the higher education of state school teachers who do not yet have bachelor’s degrees.

Almost half of teachers without degrees in classrooms are in the Northeast, according to Ministry of Education data. This is why scholarships for Teaching Certification and Full Degree programs are offered exclusively to early childhood and elementary education professionals teaching in cities in this part of Brazil.
