Scientific Initiation (IC)

Scientific Initiation (IC) is always associated with a professor from UNICAMP. The Graduation Coordination Office does not intermediate scholarships, the student is required to find a professor who is willing to be his/her advisor. An application for a scholarship should always be submitted with a research plan to be developed during the scholarship period, signed by both the advisor-professor and the student. The student should submit the monitoring reports requested by the financing agency throughout the scholarship period. This type of assistance features the most options:

  • The student may, through a professor, apply to development institutions (CNPq, FAPESP, among others) for a scholarship, not associated with UNICAMP in this case.
  • The student may apply for one of the research scholarships awarded by the Student Support Service (SAE), where the selection criteria are based largely on the student´s performance. 
  • The student may apply for one of the scholarships awarded by the Institutional Programme for Scientific Initiation Scholarships (PIBIC) coordinated by the Office of the Dean of Research (PRP), where the selection criteria are based on the student´s academic performance.
