The module will address reporting techniques and tools for journalism, public financing of large-scale construction projects, conditions in the Brazilian prison system, police reform, Brazil’s role in the UN and the OAS, and how Brazilian arms fuel conflicts around the world.

Money-Back Deal
Upon enrollment, each student must provide a check in the amount of one month’s minimum wage (R$937.00) and sign the Money-Back Deal. If the deal is complied with in full, the student will receive a 100% scholarship from OBORÉ and their check will be returned.

Non-compliance with any of the following four conditions will imply full payment of the course: (1) participate in all the meetings; (2) produce all the weekly writing exercises; (3) participate in at least one one-on-one session; and (4) have at least one article on the course topics published in a media outlet with its own editor.
