The Exchange Program for Undergraduate Students (PEC-G) is a program by the federal government that offers higher education opportunities to citizens of developing countries with which Brazil has educational and cultural agreements. The program annually selects foreigners, between 18 and 23 years old, with a high school diploma, to carry out undergraduate studies in Brazil.
