UNIDA is a nonprofit and financially independent higher education institute. Its student population is drawn largely from urban peripheries (approx. 50% of the student body), with a high percentage of women (45%) and black students (70%).

‘Faith in the Future’ is a new scholarship program which seeks to reach out to thousands of students either to enable progression from undergraduate to graduate programs or to broaden access to undergraduate programs. Women, Afro-Brazilians and people from urban peripheries are underrepresented in Brazilian higher education. With your help, ‘Faith in the Future’ wants to invest US$ 10 million in expanding educational opportunities over the next 5 years.

UNIDA has a project to reach 3,800 students in the next 5 years:

  • Graduate Program in Religious Studies – 400 students

  • Undergraduate Program in Theology – 2500 students

  • Graduate Programs (Specialization) – 500 students

  • Continuing Education Courses  – 400 students
