In most cases, the academic institution works directly with students to help them find a placement. Whenever this is not the case, CBIE will act as the placement coordinator and will contact these students to assist them with the placement process.
Hosting a CsF Student
An Exciting Experience
Since May 2013, over 1500 CsF students have completed research or industry placements with private sector companies, organizations, municipal governments or academic institutions across Canada. Students have gained valuable experience working with state-of-the-art equipment like world-class wind tunnels and on multi-million dollar research projects at Canadian institutions.
This experience has proven mutually beneficial for the students and host companies and contributes to greater, long‐term partnerships, knowledge exchange and economic ties between Canada and Brazil.
With both Canada and Brazil poised to become crucial economic players in the 21st century, the CsF students bring their knowledge in key sectors such as:
• Aerospace technology
• Minerals technology
• Renewable energy
• Marine sciences
• Oil and gas technologies
• Clinical and Health Sciences
• Information and Communications’ Technologies
• Sustainable agricultural production, and more…
How to Participate
Your company will benefit from:
• Innovative ideas from top students who have valuable knowledge and experience in science and technology‐related sectors in Brazil;
• Input from a dedicated 2nd or 3rd year student willing and able to contribute to the projects and mission of your organization;
• The opportunity to build a solid foundation for future collaborations with Brazil – a rapidly-growing trading partner with Canada – by identifying top students for potential recruitment at company offices in Brazil; and
• CBIE’s expertise in managing the international student experience in Canada, including insurance, accommodation, and visas.
Who can host a CsF student?
Any company or organization that can:
• Offer a meaningful, applied, full-time learning opportunity to a student in their field of study for four months (beginning in September, May or January);
• Provide supervision and guidance to the student;
• Provide appropriate working conditions and facilities.
Compensation: Note that as students receive a monthly stipend from the Government of Brazil to cover their living costs during their placement and have health insurance coverage, this is considered a paid placement. Hosts may chose to supplement this allowance, but it is not required.
