Fulbright U.S. - Brazil Initiative
With the rapid growth of Brazil's economy and the forging of unprecedented ties between the United States and Brazil in trade, energy and scientific development, the governments of these two countries have formed the U.S.-Brazil Partnership for the 21st Century, an initiative designed to continue to strengthen ties between the two countries in the areas of commerce, economics, education, and innovation.
