crowdfunding to study in china


Hi! My name is Lucas. I'm a Brazilian composer and music student. I compose concert and experimental music, songs, soundtracks. I hold a degree in Composition at Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil), where I also finished a master's degree with a thesis about Henri Pousseur, serialism and non-Western music.


This year (2022) I was granted with a full scholarship to do a second master's degree in China! (Well, I couldn't find a PhD in my field that accept people without fluent Chinese). It's all already ready to my departure and the begin of my course at Nanjing University of the Arts. There's only a last thing: I can't afford the flight from Brazil to China and the scholarship doesn't cover it neither the quarantine expenses during my first 10 days there. So I'm doing this crowdfunding.


My departure is planned for October/November this year (the exact date only depends on when it's cheaper). From September until my departure I'll attend to online Chinese classes offer by the university.

Ticket for October/November: R$6.514 (about US$1260).
