The Undergraduate Students Program by Agreement (PEC-G) was conceived and developed in the second half of the 20th century by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE) and by the Ministry of Education (MEC), in partnership with public authorities, at federal and state levels, as well as with private companies.

The PEC-G Program chooses foreign students,  who have completed High School, aged between 18 and 25 years, who are interested in studying in Brazil.

The participants are exempt of payment of tuition fees. The conditions to be met by the students are: Completion of high school or equivalent, and proficiency in Portuguese Language (in the case of students from non-participating nations of the CPLP - Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries); Proof of funds to cover expenses related to maintenance (food, housing, transport, etc.) during the entire period of the course in Brazil.

The agreements between Brazil and the countries of origin foresees the preferential selection of people included in socioeconomic development programs and it establishes the student's commitment to return to their country with the aim to contribute to it, in the area of studies in which he obtained the degree.
