The Center for the Development of Mathematics and Sciences - CDMC, was created by FGV in 2017 with the purpose of identifying, in the country's public schools, young talents with special ability to learn Mathematics in order to offer them the possibility of carrying out studies in undergraduate and graduate courses at Fundação Getulio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro.

In recent years, the Talent Selection project has identified students from public schools with excellent performance in the Brazilian Public School Mathematics Olympiad.

Students are invited to take the entrance exam at the Fundação Getulio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro in an initiation course offered by the institution: Applied Mathematics, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Economic Sciences, Administration, Social Sciences, Law and Digital Communication.

Since the launch of the project, in 2017, hundreds of candidates from different states have participated in the entrance exam and were approved in one of these FGV admission courses. These are students who stand out among the Foundation’s student body for their extreme learning capacity and show themselves as new talents for the future of the country.








Identify young talents in Brazilian public schools, with the aim of encouraging them to pursue undergraduate and graduate studies at FGV Schools in Rio de Janeiro.


Identify public schools of excellence based on their MEC performance indexes and the Knowledge Olympics, in order to contribute to the training of their teachers, the improvement of school management and the preparation of their students.





Financial assistance

Exemption from monthly fees and academic fees for undergraduate courses chosen by students and housing assistance in Rio de Janeiro, whose renewal will depend on good academic performance.


Student support mechanisms, with human resources specialized in psychosocial support, aimed at maximizing the probability of success, especially for students from places far from large cities.

Academic Resources

Students invited to the project, interested in preparing for the entrance exam at Fundação Getulio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro, will have the opportunity to participate in the online reinforcement program in Mathematics, Literature, Writing and Portuguese. Enrolled students, on the other hand, have academic support through monitors, complementary Mathematics and English classes and access to study rooms and laboratories at FGV.
