Another EPGE Student was awarded with the FAPERJ Sandwich Scholarship for complementary research abroad

Another PhD student of FGV EPGE - Brazilian School of Economics and Finance, Kym Ardison, was awarded with the FAPERJ sandwich scholarship, whose goal is to foster educational cooperative networks and research between institutions and foreign PhD students enrolled in Graduate Programs. Providing mobility and integration, this aid allows students to complete their training within the period of 1 year of study at a higher education institution abroad.

Kym, who has his project "Essays on Risk of Extremes Events" oriented by Professor Caio Almeida, will study at Northwestern University from March 2016 to March 2017.

The student is the third of the economy program to win the scholarship and like others, also attended the Academic Master's program at FGV EPGE.
