2018 ESIA Capstone Group Project - Brazil Initiative

The 2018 ESIA Capstone team supported by the Brazil Initiative has completed its project and presented it at the Elliott School of International Affairs. According to the team, the time they spent in São Paulo "was definitely an unforgettable experience and already has impacted Andrea and her work through Access".

They have really made an impressive job and the Brazil Initiative wants to thank all the group members for representing GW, Elliott and the Brazil Initiative so well.

Fala Português?


On Tuesday, April 24, LATAM@GW is holding its first "Fala Português?" workshop, a get-together with Portuguese-speaking students (both native and second-language speakers). The idea is to encourage a friendly dynamic for attendees to explore and practice their Portuguese communication skills. We will have facilitators to keep the conversation flowing and students and their friends are welcome to come and just listen. 


This conversation workshop will take place in District House B207 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. 
Pizza and beverages will be served.


LATAM@GW is the official student organization associated with the LAHS Program. All undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in Latin America and the Caribbean are welcome to join!
