The doctoral student at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Autaki Waura, met with the Minister of Education, Camilo Santana, and the Secretary of Higher Education at the Ministry of Education (MEC), Denise Carvalho, during the period of his mobility in France. The meeting took place on November 9, during a visit by the Ministry of Education (MEC) to the Casa do Brasil in France, located in the International University City of Paris. Also participating in the meeting were the director of Maison du Brésil, Antonio Brasil Junior, and the director of International Relations at the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), Rui Oppermann. 

CAPES is one of the financiers of Casa do Brasil in France, which offers housing to Brazilian students and researchers. The indigenous Autaki Waura, a PhD candidate in Social Anthropology at Unicamp, currently resides at Maison du Brésil. Autaki is in France, carrying out an exchange with a scholarship from the Guatá Program promoted by the French Embassy in Brazil. The Guatá Notice offered scholarships in 2023 for indigenous doctoral students for mobility to France and French Guiana. Unicamp is one of the partner Universities of the Guatá Program and since 2018 has been applying the indigenous entrance exam for the admission of indigenous students to undergraduate studies.
