Brazilian Alliance will offer financial support to students from Portuguese background to enter or transfer to a four-year institution.  A minimum GPA level will be required for the student to re-apply every academic semester.  We hope that by offering scholarships, a student will be concentrating on their academic performance as opposed to working while they are in college.  We understand how hard it is for ESL students to perform at a higher academic level when they are unable to dedicate more time for their academic pursuits.
