Spend a Summer in Brazil!

Weston Public Schools is proud to announce its continued development of global education opportunities at the high school. In order to further develop students’ global perspective and foster international friendship, Weston is continuing its partnership with Porto Alegre, Brazil through the offering of a semester academic exchange.  The partnership between Weston and Porto Alegre is longstanding; students have been traveling between the two communities since 1960.
If selected, you will be attending Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre and living with a host family. Costs of housing and tuition will be covered by the Porto Alegre Exchange committee. The Weston student selected will be expected to cover their own airfare, visa, and personal expenses. The program length is from June to late August and is open to one student in the freshman, sophomore, or junior class.  Portuguese language experience not required.  The committee will be evaluating a student’s enthusiasm and character in addition to academic ability when considering applications. Ability to adapt to new situations and desire to expand one’s global perspective are also attributes that will be considered.
