At the inauguration of Impa Tech, the Institute’s 1st undergraduate course, the president compared Brazil to Chile and Argentina

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) blamed the “elite” for Brazil being behind other countries in higher education. At the inauguration of Impa Tech, the 1st undergraduate course at Impa (Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics), the president compared Brazil to Chile and Argentina.

Impa Tech is a higher education institute financed by the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Ministry of Education, and has a partnership with the city of Rio de Janeiro. For 2024, the Federal Government will invest R$18.7 million in Impa Tech.

“We are behind because for many decades and many centuries the elite that ran this country did not imagine children of poor people, children of the middle class, studying. Those who studied were those who could send their children to Paris, London, Madrid, Harvard.”stated Lula.

100 students will be served in the 1st year, reaching 400 students after 4 years. Students will have access to student accommodation, under the responsibility of Rio’s city hall, and financial support from the Federal Government, with a scholarship of R$500 and food assistance of R$1,290 per month.

“It is not a reason to be proud that a country the size of Brazil has proportionally fewer students at university than Chile. It is no reason to be proud that our country has proportionally fewer students at university than Argentina”declared the PT member.
