Dillard University in New Orleans Hosting a Large Contingent of Students From Brazil

dillard_logoDillard University in New Orleans will be hosting a large group of students from Brazil for the next three semesters under the HBCU-Brazil Alliance. The alliance, established by the federal government, seeks to increase cooperation in STEM disciplines between Brazilian universities and historically Black colleges and universities in the United States.

The Brazilian students will spend the current semester at Dillard’s Center for Intensive English Language (CIEL). Then in the fall of this year, the students will enroll in Dillard’s traditional academic programs. The Brazilian government will pay all tuition and room and board costs.

“Dillard’s CIEL program will help these students learn the English language and provide them with the study skills necessary for academic success in the U.S. and their native Brazil,” said Kimya Dawson-Smith, director of Dillard’s Office of International Students and Study Abroad Programs. “We are very excited to welcome our first cohort, and we look forward to continued growth each year through this initiative.”
