Registration for the second edition of SwB UK Ambassador contest is open. The initiative is organized by the British Embassy in Brazil, with support from CsF Network.

The contest is aimed at alumni of the Science Without Borders – UK who have already returned to Brazil and have interesting stories to tell, either about their experience in the UK, or the period back to Brazil. The objective is to promote projects and partnerships of the students that even after completion of their programs, continue to establish ties with Britain.

In 2015, the winner was Lucas Leung, 22, Manufacturing Engineering student at Unicamp Limeira. During his trip to the UK, Lucas visited several British universities, meeting other program fellows, and revisited Sheffield, which received him during the exchange. He also made a cultural tour around the country, visited the Parliament on company Baroness Hooper, besides knowing Mr. Roberto Jaguaribe, Brazil’s ambassador in London. Currently, Lucas is involved in several projects of the network of alumni CsF – UK (SwB UK Alumni Network), sharing their experiences, for example in the blog Embaixadores da Rainha and representing in an engaged way, the alumni community.
