The main financial source for UFF’s Postgraduate Program in Language Studies (PosLing) is the Proap-Capes-Graduate Studies Support Program. PosLing relies on this financial source for:
a) bringing panel members from outside the State of Rio de Janeiro for the oral examinations of dissertations and theses;
b) funding the participation of occasional collaborators, visiting professors from Brazil and abroad who teach mini-courses, give conferences, and participate in other academic events (every year each line of research uses this funding to teach a mini-course);
c) the participation of the Program’s faculty members in the area’s events in Brazil, paying for their transportation or per diem expenses (the Program preferably funds Professors who do not have a CNPq or FAPERJ grant). This funding is limited to one event per year;
d) the participation of Program students in the area’s events (each supervisor selects one master’s or doctoral student per year);
e) the publication of academic works accepted for publication in the Coleção Ensaios, aimed at disseminating the Program’s, Professors’ and students’ research results;
f) paying service providers in charge of maintaining the webpage and the Program’s computer system and other technical work, such as editorial revision and translation, among others;
g) purchasing equipment, permanent and consumable supplies required to carry out the ongoing bureaucratic activities necessary for the Program’s functioning.
