Postponement in grant applications

Good News!

Due to the big number of people applying for IONS Campinas we have decided to postpone the deadline for grant applications. We have now a new date, 15th May.

So, if you are interested in applying for a grant, you have more two weeks to prepare your work and to send us to analysis. We are going to grant up to 500USD per request.

Thereafter we are going to evaluate the results as soon as possible. In this way everyone is going to have time enough to make the arrangements.

We are looking forward to receiving your application!
